Hello Brave Community!
I checked the common issues section, didn’t find this issue mentioned. Looking for suggestions or to submit a bug.
I’ve been experiencing for a couple months now through multiple Brave version update releases, 1-3 seconds buffering from audio & video both and separately on multiple sites like Soundcloud, YouTube, and Vimeo every time I right-click or use the Brave menu, open a new tab, or leave the focus of the tab playing media to another tab or window.
This is occurring on at least 3 different Windows 7 x64 pcs, all laptops. Brave version: 0.22.810
2 Lenova’s 8Gbs RAM, sata hdds.
1 HP 8Gbs RAM, SSD hdd.
This occurs both with hardware acceleration support enabled or disabled. This happens with old and new sessions with as little as 2 tabs on 1 window open.
The issue is specific to Brave because I can work within other applications from Word, to heavily processor intensive apps like database or VPN apps, to a 3rd-party browser like Chrome or Firefox and play the same video - and there’s no buffering issues with Brave playing in the background. The issue only occurs while I’m interacting within Brave.
