Video Shenanigans

Description of the issue:
So my videos on youtube get these weird green flashes and I’m not sure why. And a lot of time autoplayed gifs from outside websites linked in will kinda break a webpage for a bit.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
I just go on a video and it’ll start having weird green flashes, or on reddit when I open a gif but not go to the post itself it’ll just freeze and never play with autoplay on. And certain nondescript websites videos just will not play no matter what
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:

Reproduces how often:
The youtube flashes don’t happen too often. The gif one happens everytime and the nondescript website one does all the time.
Brave Version(about:brave):
I’m on the new brave browser, I had no issue with the old one.
Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
Additional Information:

Hi @Gandalf,
Can you share your Brave version (Menu > About Brave)?

Also can you try with “Hardware acceleration” disabled?
Settings > Advanced > System > Use hardware acceleration when available.


Brave is up to date

Version 0.58.18 Chromium: 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Will try your solution and hope it works :smile:
