Can you try disable “Hardware acceleration” in Brave’s Settings and see if it can solve your issue?

In addition to what @eljuno asked, do you hear the crackling sound only when streaming audio/video in Brave? If you open a different browser or application that plays sound, do you hear the same crackling?

Yes, I hear the crackling sound only on Brave. Turning off the hardware acceleration fixed it.
