When I disconnect laptop from charging, any video player tab in brave starts lagging

Description of the issue:
When I disconnect laptop from power, Any video player (AWS, Youtube etc.) Starts freezing/lagging (video plays for 6 seconds, around 3rd seccond, video starts playing in slow motion while audio is fine, around 6th second, video stops and visuals teleport to correct place, freeze for a second, repeat this even if I re-start browser, reopen tabs etc. NOTE: when I switch to other browser like Firefox, this doesn’t happen, I suspect somethig to do with batery saving, particulary: switching between dedicated GPU to integrated APU.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Launch Brave
  2. Visit any website that hosts videos, like youtube or twitch.
  3. watch some videos (in fullscreen) while charging laptop
  4. disconnect charger.
    Quick note: I noticed this happening especially when I play some video game and disconnect power
    Actual Result:
    Video starts freezing the way I described above.

Expected Result:
Video should continue without lagging.

Reproduces how often:
Always~~ish, I found it happening more often when GPU-intensive task is done before I turn-off charging.

Brave release - Version 1.52.126

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):

Additional information:
I’m using Windows 11, BUT this was happening on windows 10 too. My laptop has AMD-Nvidia combo ( AMD Ryzen 7 4800H With Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 ← Revision with GDDR6)

Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?

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

Could be switching between the AMD GPU and Nvidia GPU. The AMD GPU might be more effiecent when off charging and when charged its using the Nvidia GPU.

There is a option in Windows Settings to configure a per-app on what GPU uses.

Sorry for late response, mail was put into spam. Will try that out
