When audio from youtube videos is being played with brave in the background the audio start to stutter or sounds like someone constantly is pressing pause. Sometimes it takes a couple of minutes, sometimes it happens immediately but it wont stop.
I have reinstalled the app, I’ve deleted the cookies and the cache, tried Brave beta and nightly and the issue is still there. Please help
@Kevin_cc I’m on Brave version 1.48.160 and I’m running android 13. @Vierio users have been reporting this for quite some time…the most recent one I could find got one answer from Brave devs, after that they went silent when the user reported that it is still broken…so I don’t know.
@Miruso could you please go to Settings > Background video playback and disable it, then fully close Brave and reopen it again, once you are back on Brave follow the same steps to enable it to see if it works?
@Miruso could you please tell me the device model you are currently using for Brave? In the meantime if you have any power save mode option enabled on your device please disable it to see if this changes this behavior.
Late to the party here but just wanted to say that I’ve informed the Android team about this issue to see if we can reproduce. I personally cannot (using Samsung Galaxy S22) reproduce the behavior — I read this post, started playing a ~20m long video in the background and then started using some other apps on my phone. That video is still playing as I type this without any stutter.
It would be helpful to know if this stutter occurs when the browser is minimized and you start using specific apps, or if this occurs while using any other app while the browser is minimized? Also, if you simply minimize the browser and don’t use any other apps does it still stutter?
I used brave for months before this issue appeared so it might not appear immediately, but be sure that I wouldn’t have gone through the trouble of raising a support ticket and bothering developers if this issue wasn’t real. The stuttering has no single trigger, sometimes it happens when I turn my screen off, sometimes it happens when I use an app, other times it doesn’t happen at all. I noticed there’s an option to uplaod media. The next time this happens I’ll make a screen recording to provide some more evidence of this.
