Hello @JDcreating

Thanks for bringing this to our attention and sorry to hear you’re having trouble with Brave. Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings one more time, to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

Let me know if that works and have a great day!

yes that worked. Thank you.

I’m curious why it’s necessary? Why is Hardware Acceleration stopping the video player?
