Description of the issue:
Video playback, like YouTube, Twitch, Netflix, are choppy since yesterday’s (Mar 2, 2022) update of V1.36.109. Choppy as 3-4 frames per second.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Right click on “Brave” app.
- Click on “Properties.”
- In “Target,” type:
--disable-frame-rate-limit (make sure to leave a space before “–”)
- Click “Apply” and (re)launch the app.
- Go to YouTube.
- Click on any videos.
Video should play normally with 30-60 frames per second.
Version 1.36.109 Chromium: 99.0.4844.51 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Windows 10 Pro x64, 10.0.19043

An example of results, note that “DDU was used to completely remove all traces of NVIDIA Drivers” (I have never heard of ‘DDU’):
I have the same issue but on Linux with “Brave 1.36.109 Chromium: 99.0.4844.51 (Build officiel) (64 bits)” on Fedora 35
--disable-frame-rate-limit args it’s ok, but when is present video playback skip lots of frame on render. Page scrolling and sound is ok.
EDIT 03/06: it’s a chromium bug since v99. I replicate this with MS Edge and chromium both Windows and Linux
Try installing this extension, it fixed the issue for me:
same issue even in Brave 1.37.109 Chromium: 100.0.4896.60 on Manjaro 21.2.5
do you have a link to the chromium bug or know which version fixes it?
