    Ever since i've had this device, whenever I play a video (like an m3u8 stream) in a web browser (Chrome, Brave etc.), that uses the the default android web video player, as soon as the playback controls auto-fade-out, the video freezes (the audio is still playing as normal). If I touch the screen to bring the controls back, the video playback resumes again, but freezes as soon as the controls go away. If I repeatedly tap the screen, the video resumes but it's very jerky - like it's only playing the video when it detects a touch input.

    Has anyone else had this? My Sony Xperia XZ Premium doesn't have any issues, and i've checked i'm running the same versions of Android System WebView and my web browsers, on both phones. It doesn't seem to matter what the quality of the video is either, it's doing it on a 576p web stream.

    Welcome to Android Central! Sometimes an update to Android System Webview can cause odd things to happen -- see what happens if you uninstall updates to it. You can also try uninstalling updates to Chrome (if possible -- this can only be done if Chrome came preinstalled).
