Videos Stutter, Freeze and play in Slow-Mo

Hello, I have the following issue since like 2 months ago (everything worked fine for months until this and no noticeable thing changed on my overall operating system to be the obvious cause for this): every video from twitch replays to ytb vids or live streams, regardless of quality stutter, lose fps badly, play in slow motion, lose sync with audio, or ‘‘freeze’’ completely in a multiple-seconds buffer time. All of the above happen constantly, and consistently, 95% of every video is corrupted by these performance issues. The quality always gets downgraded to lowest setting automatically but this doesnt help AT ALL, and it shouldnt, as I have absolutely no issue with my GPU or internet. This does not happen at all on Edge, flawless performance there. So far I thought it might be my integrated gpu or something but it seems it only happens on Brave, and it happens regardless of the display I choose to have the browser on, DGPU or IGPU controlled ones. Can someone help?

How can this issue be reproduced?

Open any video on any website and play it. No idea how others can reproduce this tho.

Brave Version:

Version 1.64.109 Chromium: 123.0.6312.58 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

Ive tried to ask for help from different communities and the only solution that was thrown out in the wind was to clean reinstall the video/audio drivers, I have not yet tried this yet tho.

I have however tried to clean ALL Brave residual files and do a clean reinstall, this didnt fix it. Also Hardware acceleration on/off doesnt make any difference either.
