Seems like there is a bug with video rendering or new "feature" that was not mentioned in change logs.

I use app OnTopReplica to grab video from page and show it on top of other windows. But about a week ago I faced a problem: video from youtube or twitch is not rendered when browser window is completely overlapped by other window. I'm sure problem is valid for any website with video tag.
I tried to disable hardware acceleration or change some video related settings in edge://flags/, but video is still not rendered in such conditions.

I use Edge from dev channel. Same issue is present in canary channel. But beta channel works well. I managed to reproduce it on 2 PCs with Windows 10 and in Windows Sandbox.
Attached video shows it using canary build in Windows Sandbox.

Hi,
try using this extension instead, it's from Google it works with YouTube and most of other websites

I've been using it on Canary and it never got broken.
I'm on Version 79.0.313.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit) now

@HotCakeX 
Thanks, it might replace OnTopReplica for my scenario.
But anyway, I'm still curious is it feature or bug.
