Desktop Brave freeze computer on playing Youtube

Description of the issue:

Brave consumed large amount of RAM and freeze computer. This happens today and reboot doesn’t fix it.
I got 32gb RAM and when I executed other app, I got message saying not enough memory. At that moment I had couple Youtube pages opened, one of them was a live stream. Hardware acceleration for the browser is OFF. When I checked the browser, it showed that Brave shield had blocked 99+ tracing from YouTube. I turned off Brave shield and it seems working fine now.

I also checked Event viewer, here is the error message and a warning before the error message.
Also, I found a lot of event log created by brave and it doesn’t have detail description, only ‘The operation completed successfully’. no additional info is provided. If you want to be reliable browser, put more detail on what is that process doing.

  1. Open YouTube and find a live stream playing. Open couple other apps to run in the background.
  2. Wait for 15-30 mins

Expected result:
Youtube page freezed. Some other windows app might behave weird as well.
