Browser crashes when clicking the "Control your music, videos, and more" button


The browser crashes entirely and immediately when the “Control your music, videos, and more” button is clicked. Please view the OS and Brave browser version below. Thank you.

Operating System and Brave Version:
Windows 10 Pro; Version: 21H1
Version 1.25.68 Chromium: 91.0.4472.77 (Official Build) (64-bit) (

I found a solution to the issue of the original post.
First, go to the address bar and navigate to brave://flags

  1. Set “Global media controls control Cast start/stop” as default (this might have been the cause of the “crash” problem)

  2. Set “Global Media Controls for Cast” as enabled to continue using the function with the “Control your music, videos, and more” button
