Stalled requests on YouTube causing extreme delay and buffering on first watch

Description of the issue: On YouTube, when loading a new video there is an extremely long delay after the first few seconds of video. Inspecting the traffic shows it as being “stalled”. Disabling cache globally fixes the issue, however it’s an extremely terrible approach. This has been happening for almost a year and I’ve suffered through it. THIS ALSO HAPPENS IN PRIVATE WINDOWS.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to Youtube
  2. Play a video that you haven’t played before
  3. Notice the buffering after the first second or two
  4. Cry.

Expected result: Seamless playback

Brave Version( check About Brave): Version 1.34.81 Chromium: 97.0.4692.99 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information: Here is a screenshot of the network tab for the stalled request. This happens on every video.
