Description of the issue:
This problem started happening today. Any video playback produces this awful visual artifacts on the highlights and midtones of the video. This happens with all video playback, from autoplaying site videos to streaming on your favorite platform. I also tried disabling hardware acceleration and relaunching; same problem. In the screenshots below, you’ll see the artifacts right away. I tried launching in new windows and also launching a private session and it still produces the same weird bug. My hardware is fine, as no other application on the computer produces these artifacts. I use my workstation for video production so I’m used to dealing with driver issues and recognizing compression when I see it. I’m using the latest version of Brave on a standard browser, no nightly or anything like that.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
- Launch a new window
- Find any video content
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
I hope to get it fixed and back to normal. I love using Brave to surf the internet, consume video content, and work from home on it. I hope to receive a software update soon.
Reproduces how often:
Operating System and Brave Version(See the
About Brave page in the main menu):
Windows 10 Professional (Latest Build), AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, 32GB -DDR4-3600MHz - CL16, AMD Radeon VII, AsRock X570 Tachi, 2TB Sabrent Rocket PCIe Gen 4 NVME SSD
This browser definitely gets massive cool points from me. this seems like a better version of Google Chrome. Having this privacy focus is awesome and I’m 100% on board. Also, are you still hiring?
