Academy videos auto-pause on focus loss

Hey there, I just started the UiPath Academy “Level 3 - Advanced Training” course within the RPA Developer learning plan.
What’s bugging me is that the videos seem to pause automatically whenever focus is lost from the tab or window. Due to this, I am unable to follow along with the video on my UiPath Studio instance on my other monitor, which I find to be quite inconvenient.
This issue (feature?) was not present in the videos within the RPA Developer Foundation Training.
Is this an intended functionality? And is there any option or workaround to disable this?

Try disabling hardware media key handling in chrome.
chrome://flags/#hardware-media-key-handling - make sure it’s disabled.
