Youtube videos don't become full screen

Description of the issue:
Youtube video doesn’t open in Landscape full screen when I click on the full screen button on the video while in portrait mode (Auto rotate disabled)
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Start watching any Youtube video
  2. Click on the full screen button near the bottom right corner of the video
  3. Opens in full screen but in potrait mode only

Expected result:
The full-screen should happen into landscape mode. To have that happen, now I have to keep auto rotate turned on. Checking my feed on YouTube whole in landscape sucks
Brave Version( check About Brave):
1.63.174
Mobile Device details
Xiaomi 11 Lite NE
Additional Information:
I think earlier, whenever the full screen button was clicked, it would always open into landscape full screen so that I don’t have to enable auto rotate, with this I have to keep it turned on and need to rotate phone into potrait once I am done with a video to comfortably check out my feed

It’s a bug on chromium. Should be fixed in later updates.
