Hello @MemphiZ

go to brave://settings/system and disable Use hardware acceleration when available

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:


I’ve tried that, besides it making the streams look grainy it also lowers the FPS down to a terrible rate, so that’s not a viable solution. Thanks for the suggestion though :slight_smile:

That didn’t work either but I’ve found the culprit.
In the Nvidia Control Panel my global settings for “Max Frame Rate” are set to my monitors refresh rate (60). I guess that multiple instances of brave share this frame rate which leads to the lag/stutter. Once I’ve added “Program Settings” for “brave.exe” and set that to “Off” all windows play videos just fine.


well done gald to know that you figured it out and have a nice day :slight_smile:
