Audio Duplicates and Plays out-of-Sync in Background


Description of the issue:
On sites that play video, (specifically Instagram stories, Tiktok and URLs for MP3 files such as this one: http://number-none.com/blow/media/psalm_46.mp3) I find that the audio continues playing in the background even when the video is paused. If I play the video, the audio in the background continues to play - leading to two out-of-sync audio tracks playing at the same time.

How can this issue be reproduced?

As above.

Expected result:
Pausing videos should stop the audio. There should not be two separate out-of-sync audios playing simultaneously.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.42.88 Chromium: 104.0.5112.81 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

@phytographer,
Thank you for reaching out.
I’m not seeing this on my end on either macOS or Windows systems — audio stops when the audio/video is paused and resumes properly when unpaused (no syncing issue). Can you please confirm for me whether you’re using Windows 10 or 11? Additionally, can you tell me if you have any extensions installed in the browser at this time?

Thanks.

I’m using Windows 11

@phytographer,
Wow that is quite the list of extensions. Well I can almost certainly guarantee you that one or more of the extensions you have installed is causing this issue.

The easiest way to test this would be to create a new, temp. browser profile and try to reproduce the issue (please ensure that you only have one Brave window open when testing — that one window being the newly created profilie). My guess is that it does not reproduce when using the new profile.
