Accelerated Streaming Buffers

There are times when I am watching trainings or other video content that I speed up the video because I can listen faster than some people talk. I often use an extension or the little gear to be able to speed things up, sometimes as much as 2X. If I an watching in Safari or Chrome, there is no problem. With Brave, once I am a few minutes in, the stream stops. Sometimes it catches up and starts again, sometimes not.

I am on a 2011 Imac running OS 10.13.6, 24 gigs of ram, 3TB HDD. I have plenty of bandwidth, 250MBS +.

Description of the issue:

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Begin streaming a video
Use extension “Video Speed Controller” to increase streaming speed
or use the gear in the corner of the screen to increase speed

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Stream stops, buffers. Sometimes there is a rotating wheel of sorts in the center of the screen, sometimes not.

Expected result:

Video plays at increased speed up to 2X

Reproduces how often:

At least 60% of the time probably closer to 75%

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

Version 1.13.82 Chromium: 85.0.4183.83 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

If I am streaming the same content with Safari or Chrome, I never have this issue.
