YouTube videos with ads won't play

Hi everyone. I’ve been using Brave as my main browser for about a year and I like it a lot. However, there’s one issue that keeps me going back into Firefox. That is, some YouTube videos just don’t play in Brave. I’ve noticed that the ones that don’t play in Brave are the ones that have ads (the dreaded Grammarly and Wix ads :)), and ones without ads work fine.

On videos with ads, I just get the black box with the spinny thing and eventually this message:


It’s not an autoplay-blocking issue because nothing happens when I click play multiple times. I’m using an up-to-date Manjaro Linux and stable Brave version:

Version 1.7.92 Chromium: 80.0.3987.163 (Official Build) unknown (64-bit)

I’ve had this problem for a long time and would appreciate any help solving it.
