[Windows] Hardware Acceleration alters Video Quality, Colors and Brightness of B&W

Description of the issue:
Hardware Acceleration (HW-ACC) causes Videos to have a more “washed out” look and causes video quality to drop in comparison to HW-ACC off.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Enable hardware acceleration on Brave Browser
  2. Watch a YouTube Video
  3. Result. Video noticeably influenced in comparison to HW-ACC off (Colors are washed out, black spots are more “white”

Expected result:
Videos should not be visually influenced simply by having HW-ACC on.
