I think I see what is happening
@qmod1000 I’m not 100% confident on this, but wanted to present a possible solution if you’re willing to test it out. Have you tried going to
brave://discards/ and make sure to turn off the toggles to Auto Discardable? It’s going to be the opposite of the screenshot below, where I have it all enabled. (I think I’m saying that right)
At least know others said that resolved it for them. What happens is Chromium browsers can be really resource heavy. So when you’re not using tabs, they try to essentially hibernate them. This can stop content from the page from playing, but also can cause it to refresh when you go back to them.
If you have it set not to discard, then it keeps it active. Just be advised that this can also increase cpu usage.
Again, not 100% sure I’m giving the right solution to the problem, but you can test and let me know. Trying to think if I even have the issue as almost everything continues to run for me. It may also just be the idea of having
Continue running background apps when Brave is closed or something going. If you test and doesn’t work, then I’ll try to get Support to advise.
@qmod1000 thanks for trying. Just knew it had resolved for someone else so I felt comfortable at least putting out there to attempt. Normally would tag Mattches on this but know I’ve already tagged a lot recently and he’s been very busy. I’m going to try to tag in @Evan123 and @SaltyBanana to see if either can help. I know they’ve been doing a lot of stuff outside of Community, but they do still check in on occasion. Hopefully they pop in and know what to suggest, if anything.
Hi there, thanks for bringing this to our attention.
Could you try enabling the Memory saver feature in your Brave settings to see if this resolves the issue?
I found an addon in the Chrome store but does not work "small script is injected into every webpage which overwrites the “document.visibilityState”, and “document.hidden” properties to pretend the tab is always in the active state (document.visibilityState = ‘visible’ and document.hidden = false). "
Thanks for trying. Could you share specifically which sites you are using or experiencing for testing.
Here is a great example, try switching a tab or something and the video stops playing
@qmod1000 interesting, that’s the first videos I’ve seen that didn’t continue playing. I tested on Chrome and Edge, to which both of them replicated. I see that the player is
Brightcove Player Version 6.67.3. Not sure if this would be something to be taken up with Chromium (they tend to move faster on things) or if shouldn’t just try to contact Brightcove on it. Might be interesting to see if it’s the same type of player on other areas you’re experiencing this.
I would suggest the same as what Saoiray has mentioned.
I’m not entirely sure what the solution is here as I am able to replicate this across different browsers.
Maybe Brightcove may have more answers to your questions.
