Background iOS Brave crash while streaming audio

Description of the issue: When the audio-streaming tab is not the active tab when leaving the application, Brave crashes 3 minutes later.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Open Brave on iOS (I’m in always-private mode)
  2. Open an audio streaming address ( e.g., but it happens with others)
  3. Once the audio is streaming, open a new tab and navigate to a site (, say)
  4. Leave Brave (audio stream continues)
  5. Wait 3 minutes (audio stream stops due to Brave crashing)

This does reproduce 100% of the time for me.

We are currently working on few fixes with background playback(including ability to play videos in background), and this will most likely get fixed in 1.10 release
