Videos start to buffer when I browse on my 2nd monitor

Videos start to buffer when I browse on my 2nd monitor. Ex. Looking at reddit while youtube is playing.

Whenever I pull up a new tab on my alt. monitor and start browsing while watching videos.

Windows 11 Pro 1.45.116

Started to happen a few weeks ago.

Hello @Anon888

Thank you for reaching out and sorry to hear you’re having trouble with Brave. Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings one more time, to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

Additionally, It could be related to an extension interfering with your profile, please try removing your extensions to see if it works properly. To Remove an Extension:

  1. On your computer, open Brave.
  2. At the top right, click Menu icon --> More tools --> Extensions.
  3. On to the extension you want to remove, click Remove.
  4. Confirm by clicking Remove.


  1. On your computer, open Brave.
  2. On your extensions toolbar, right-click the extension you would like to remove.
  3. Select Remove from Brave… from the context menu.

Let me know if that works and have a nice day!

None of these work unfortunately.

@Alice2095 Does not work sadly.
