Twitter videos frozen

An odd phenomenon that seems to have started in the past week or so.

Posts that contain embedded videos from Twitter play, but the image is frozen. However, if I scroll the page as the video runs then the video plays as expected, until I cease scrolling. Then it freezes the image again.

Running Brave on Android. “Run Scripts” is enabled.

Goddamn TwitVids. For me, they’ve been skipping since 2015.

I think it is twitter. I would get ones that just didn’t play at all and get the same results from twitter directly. Then magically 10 minutes later they work.

I checked for that. If I go directly to Twitter the videos play fine. They only screw up when Boingboing is the pass-thru.

That happened to me last week, but it seems to have stopped.
