When I play video from any source - youtube, plex, iptv webpages, embedded videos, they all play without interruption (audio or video). However, the video is mildly stroby - like it’s running at 20FPS instead of 30FPS.
When I visit the same sites using the latest Chrome, the playback is smooth as silk.
I have used brave://flags to compare all hardware/accelerated settings between the two browsers, and they are all identical.
The problem occurs on the Brave browser, whether a single tab is open, or many. Shields up or down has no impact.
I have tried resetting the profile to default, using private tabs, and even using alternate profiles. They all strobe where Chrome does not.
I’ve uploaded a short screen capture of the two side-by-side playing the same movie intro from the same website. Brave is on the left.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Open any webpage that has a video component to it
- Press play
- watch slow frame rate playback
Smooth playback would be nice.

EDITED TO ADD: When I watch the clip on this community post using brave, they both strobe But if I view it on Chrome, only the left strobes. ARG!
