YT Shorts Plays Wrong Video

Here's the problem: over the past few days, every time I try to play a Youtube Short, it plays the wrong video, if it plays at all. As best I can tell, what's happening is that it's skipping to the end of the video I'm trying to play and cycling on to the next one.

Frankly, I dislike YT's Shorts format anyway, but some of my favorite content creators use them, so what you gonna do?

I tested it out on Edge, and there doesn't seem to be a problem there.

It doesn't seem to matter whether I try to play the video on YT itself or click an external link. The same results: I can't actually play the video I'm trying to see.

It's only been happening for a couple of days.
