Hi I'm using version 108.0.1 and have noticed when trying to play videos on YouTube I get an error message saying "if playback doesn't begin shortly, try restarting your device." I have tried clearing all cookies, removing all add-ons, running the browser in troubleshoot mode and reverting back to an older version (107.0.1) with nothing seeming to work. I have encountered a similar problem when using Sound Cloud where the song i try to play doesn't load and it continuously skips to the next track until i press the pause button.

This also isn't an issue with the account I'm using as the same happens when logged out and playback works fine on the same account on different devices.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
