Description of the issue:
Hi everyone so this issue started last week for me. Every time I open YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and other sites I get either extremely long wait times or the videos will buffer multiple times over. This has persisted to no avail of mine. I have tried this across multiple browsers as well(Brave ,Chrome, Edge, Opera GX). I have turned off hardware acceleration in the settings, disabled all shields, made sure I’m on the current version of Brave, I’ve tried wired and Wi-Fi connection as well making sure only one tab of brave is open and nothing else.
