Hello fellow Brave users,
I got a problem with my Brave Browser since a few months now. I already searched the forum but I only found people that got other problems like “Brave volume too low” which is more or less the opposite of my problem
I often have multiple Twitch streams open, a few other websites that I work through over the next hours and lets say I found a YouTube video that I want to watch now.
The first thing I do when I’m watching multiple streams on Twitch is set the volume slider of Brave in the Windows Volume Panel to 1%.
Then I set the volume of the Twitch stream to 1% as well. I do that because I don’t want to vanish from the streamers viewer list (to support multiple small streamers at once) or be eligible for Twitch Drops. So far everything works fine, but when I open the YouTube video or sometimes even another website the volume slider in Windows is resetting to 100% for the browser. Other application never reset. The thing is that it is completely random if it happens or not.
I tired a few things like start as admin, Hardware acceleration on/off, go through all the settings in Brave and check if there is something related to sound and I already reinstalled a few weeks ago. Brave and all components are updated.
Is there someone who has/had the same issue?
