Brave freezing whenever two windows are open

Description of the issue:
Whenever I’m using Brave on windows, I have one window with a video playing while browsing in another. There might be more than one video - such as a twitch stream - in the “video window” among two different tabs. After some time, all windows will freeze and the media crashes.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Do the aforementioned setup
  2. Browse normally for a while in the second window

Expected result:
The entire browser will freeze for 10 seconds or more then become responsive again, with all media that was running crashing (twitch) or restarting (youtube)
Brave Version( check About Brave):
v1.62.153
Additional Information:
The process may be expedited by having multiple streams visible, but I’m not sure. This happens every day now, and I don’t think it’s the system it’s running on as I have 12GB of VRAM and a 12900K for the CPU.
