Both video lag+slowmotion and audio lag when using hardware-acceleration

Description of the issue:
The issue I am having is that when using hardware-acceleration, the video decoding is extremely unreliable… On youtube, the video will skip seconds of content and run in slow-motion randomly but consistently throughout the videos I watch.

Some examples of my issues (Please watch the whole video to see the problems):

Broken (Private):

Working (Chromium):

Exact URL of the website in question:
The video in my example:

Did the issue present with default Shields settings? (yes/no)
The issue occurs regardless of shield settings.

Does the site function as expected when Shields are turned off?

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?
Yes, with Chromium 98.0.4758.80, with hardware-acceleration on, it works as expected.

Brave version (check About Brave):

Version 1.35.100 Chromium: 98.0.4758.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)


If you are willing to dig and troubleshoot, you might consider using Brave Browser Developer Tools >> Network

You can find that (Developer Tools >> Network) by using the Brave Browser Help menu and within its Search field, type “Developer Tools” (no quotes).

A lot of tips on how to use Developer Tools:

You can set the location for the Developer Tools window, including, detaching the window.

Using Developer Tools >> Network, takes practice.

You will no doubt discover differences (as in, what gets blocked) – between using Brave Browser and Google’s Chrome browser.
