Videos get weird interference overlay when playing

Description of the issue:
When playing videos, there’s a weird interference overlay pattern. I tried YouTube and Vimeo and it happens on both. It doesn’t happen in Chrome or MS Edge.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Go to
    (or really, any YouTube or Vimeo or Metacafe video. Probably any video) and play the video.
  2. Video may look fine for a few seconds, but then a weird interference pattern overlays the video.

Expected result:
Video plays normally, without interference.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.28.106 Chromium: 92.0.4515.159 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
If I turn off Hardware Acceleration in Brave, the problem is resolved. But what if I want to leave hardware acceleration on?

Hopefully, a screenshot of what I’m seeing is pasted below:

Which GPU do you have? is Hardware acceleration enabled in Chrome/Edge also?

Some low end GPU’s (intergrated GPU’s) may struggle with hardware accelerated tasks

Thanks for your reply.

I have a Intel(R) Iris(R) Xe Graphics card. Is that what you’re asking?

I have Hardware Acceleration turned on in Chrome, Edge, and Firefox, and the videos play smoothly in each of them.
