Bluetooth audio latency when streaming video



When streaming from Youtube and other sites, there is a noticeably greater audio lag on Bluetooth headphones when using Brave, than with Firefox and the same headphones.
There is no issue when using wired headphones.

Is there a way to adjust BT latency in Brave?

**Brave Version 1.0.72

Reproducible on current live release - yes



Apologies for the late response.
We do not have a setting no Android for that, but AFAIK the OS/device is responsible for handling sending data to the appropriate audio channel(s). I use Brave fairly frequently with my BT headphones and haven’t noticed any significant latency issues.

One thing I would like to know is whether or not the same latency issue is present in Chrome on your device. If you don’t have it - or don’t want to install it to test - that’s completely understandable. But its unfortunately going to be a difficult problem to diagnose.



Thanks for your reply!

Yes, I have the same issue in Chrome (and also Dolphin and Kiwi that I tried out), but strangely there isn’t much lag in Firefox. However, Brave is a much more stable browser than Firefox, so I was hoping to get video streaming running smoothly in Brave.

Perhaps it’s the OpenH264 codec that Mozilla puts in Firefox? I can’t see anything else that would explain why all other browsers have bigger latency than Firefox.

Once again, thank you for your reply. I hope, there’s a solution, or else I will just use Firefox when streaming video with my BT headphones and Brave for everything else.




Unfortunately I don’t have a solution for you at this time. It’s definitely behavior inherited from the underlying engine if both Kiwi and Dolphin gave the same results (both use Chromium).

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
