I have the same issue on my IPad. The videos will not play full screen but will play in a small window. I’m on the latest iOS

Hi. Same issue for few days, now. I’m on iPadOS 16.7, iPad Pro M1, same Brave version. It seems that YT found a way to target add blocker and probably Brave way to block adds.

I have installed Opera as a temporary measure, though you have to use YT in mobile mode to get full screen

Been playing youtube videos not signed in, and it’s been working normal all day. The YouTube ad blocker pop up window warning hasn’t showed up either. Hope this helps for the people troubleshooting.
