Brave browser flickering when watching videos on youtube while using external gpu

I’ve been having this problem on my laptop when using dedicated GPU it is easily fixable by making windows use the internal gpu but when connecting the laptop to an external monitor it runs the apps on the monitor using the external GPU whatever you do and it’s a little frustrating to watch youtube videos flickering. Turning off hardware acceleration fixes it but I have a 144hz screen and it looks horrible without acceleration.

**Description of the issue: Brave browser flickers when watching videos using dedicated GPU
How can this issue be reproduced?

1.Open a YouTube video while using hardware acceleration with dedicated nvidia GPU

**Expected result: Browser window starts to flicker

**Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.24.86 Chromium: 90.0.4430.212 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Latest Nvidia driver caused issues for me.
Rolled back to 466.27 and flickering all gone.

I will try rolling back my drivers to see if it works.

Update. The flickering on Youtube continued. I reverted to Google Chrome and zero flickering on Youtube! Guess it’s Brave then!

Thank you for letting us know – I’m passing this information on to the team for review.

Disregard. After more hunting this appears to have solved it.

Brave running fine again!
Sory for the misdirection!
