Youtube videos suddenly don't play right

Videos(youtube) keep crashing

yess it keeps crashing

What version of Windows are you on?

Is any antivirus or other security software (besides MS Defender) installed?

Do you have any extensions installed/enabled? If so, does it still happen with them all disabled?

Is anything set in brave://flags ? (Anything with a non-default setting will be sorted to the top, and will have a blue dot next to it.)

Just noticed on my side since last Brave update two days ago that Brave closes when clicking on Youtube links from Duckduckgo search engine.
I’m on Ubuntu.
If I right click on Youtube link and ask to open in new window, I don’t have the problem.

If you want to report issues here as well, you should also include the version #s involved. Especially considering there were some bugs in the prior point-release that were causing crashes, so you’ll want to start by making sure you’re on 1.41.100 before going further.

on version v1.41.100 crash city … using windows 10 gasp … of other note I no longer get add pop ups and this issue has been of and on for over a year (yes I have run the gauntlet of trouble shooting to no avail) so the likely hood of my continued use of the platform is rapidly deteriorating and this mainly stems from the memory leak issue that seems to have intensified … good luck brave developers hope you right the ship

@vijit can you please go to brave://crashes and

  • if you have automatic crash reporting is enabled (Settings --> Privacy/Security --> Automatically send diagnostic reports), please respond back here with the crash report ID
  • If Automatically send diagnostic reports is not enabled, ensure you click Send on these crash reports listed on the page, then reply here with the crash report ID

Thank you.
