If you enable the flash detection blocker (even thoug it is unnecessary these days), it will cause massive issues on several websites and will let you fail in every single Cloudflare challenge. Also, fails on more and more embedded videos, most likely since not updated for some time already now, and also gives you issues with others. Developer is not responding to bug reports.

This extension works really good, especially considering the fact that I brought it back to Brave, because it has a glitch with its own autoplay feature. Whenever I played a video, it plays 1-2 seconds of it before stopping. But that's nothing this extension can't fix! Don't take my word for it, it's still good!
