Green static on videos?

I just started working on a Dell Inspiron 15. Every time I attempt to watch a video, regardless of player (YouTube, Instagram, and I believe Vimeo have all been tested), I get green static playing over it. This does not repeat in Chrome or Edge.

Hey soneill06,

I’ve got two questions for you:

  1. Do you have any extensions, and if you do, can you disable them?
  2. Can you go to brave://settings/system and turn off Hardware acceleration to see if that fixes it?

The hardware acceleration + relaunch combo did the trick, videos work now. Thank you!
