High GPU load on YT and Twitch

Yes, but the question is which one? And no, it’s not within Brave. It would be your device and graphics card settings. There are plenty of topics on issues surrounding YouTUbe, Twitch, graphics cards, etc. We even have plenty of topics here on Community, if you’d Search Before Posting. As stated earlier though, there’s no one magic answer and it can be tricky to know which setting(s) would be causing problem for you.

If you have issues, especially with Hardware Acceleration enabled, then it means either your graphics card is trash or your settings are restricting behavior. Challenge is going through your settings to see how they differ and also making sure all drivers are updated.

Each of these are different symptoms and may not read exactly as you’re mentioning, but it’s kind of critical to look.
