Sound stops working on Brave after playing one time

Description of the issue:
Hi, First post but I’m not new to the concept. I’ve tried for maybe 2 months to resolve the issue myself, read and performed so many steps, reinstalls, changed settings, but I still have the same issue.

I see it has been posted before and there’s not really been a definitive response. I figured I would post here before moving to another browser as I like using Brave.

My problem is that when any open tab plays sound one time then all open tabs will not play sound after.

The problem does not persist after closing and reopening Brave, when I do this I am again able to play sound once before it stops.

Things I have tried so far…

  1. Uninstall/reinstall Brave
  2. Disable/enable hardware acceleration
  3. Create a new profile
  4. Entirely delete all userdata and start again
  5. Look at volume mixer, etc. to see if sound is being channeled elsewhere (it’s not)
  6. Reinstall audio drivers
  7. Try different audio outputs

Is there a definitive fix for this?


How can this issue be reproduced?

I do not know, seems not to affect everyone

Expected result:
Sound plays

Brave version

Brave 1.25.68 Chromium: 91.0.4472.77 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Revision 1cecd5c8a856bc2a5adda436e7b84d8d21b339b6-refs/branch-heads/4472@{#1246}
OS Windows 10 OS Version 1909 (Build 18363.1556)

Additional Information:

This is entirely a Brave issue, if I have no sound on Brave then I can take the URL, paste it in to another browser and get the sound.

I guess there is no actual support for Brave. I will just use a different browser.
