Video playback tearing up

Video playback is tearing up.
The video shows lines tearing up the video, playing part of the video with some delayed frames.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Brave
  2. Go to
  3. Play any video (specially notable on high frame rate videos)

Expected result:

Not have video tearing up.

@GOliveira try to toggle setting for hardware acceleration at brave://settings/system

also, may want/need to try in Private Window and/or Guest Window.

Hi there @Saoiray , Hardware acceleration is already set to on.

And also private window does not solve the issue. Just tried here after your suggestion.

Ok, I restarted my computer, and still had the issue. I started a 3d application (Fortnite) and that seems to have “activated” my Nvidia 3070 Ti. Might be an issue specific to my system.

But, in Chrome the video was playing normal before all this Fortnite thing I did.

Sadly I didn’t opened task manager to see the GPU utilization before, but now it is showing that the video is being decoded by the 3070 Ti.

If the issue repeats, I will be sure to check task manager to see what GPU is being used.

It does feel that before it wasn’t using hardware acceleration, even though the setting was, and still is turned on.

Do keep us posted if issue continues. I know in my testing, wasn’t able to duplicate yet. I was testing on:

Photos 1_16_2023 19_14_39

My most educated guess is that my system was failing to switch between integrated graphics to the dedicated graphics.

I just turned off “Game Mode” on Windows 11, and also set priority for the Nvidia GPU, and so far, so good. So yes, I guess was my system playing games on me.
