Youtube is freezing on Brave

Not sure why it’ happening, it started a few days ago and it’s pretty annoying.

Is there a way to fix that?

depending on your device, restarting is a good choice. i get the message from youtube to restart the device.

nothing to do with your computer hardware, just a software thing.

I already did that a few times. I also already checked for updates.

does it also freeze on other sites like dailymotion or rumble?

Only youtube. I always watched Netflix, Prime Vdeio, HBO Max, and others.

I have two screens, I use brave in both of them and it never happened before. When I am using youtube in one of them and use the other screen to access a random website, it makes youtube freezes / loads.

Sometimes, while I am using Brave, the browser “blinks”, like a very quick black flash, it doesn’t happen to other apps or other browsers.

The only thing I didn’t try yet was reinstalling it because I’m afraid I will lose eveything.

Could you try the same in a private window ?

Hello @oraphaelg

Thank you for reaching out and sorry to hear you’re having trouble with Brave. Does YouTube freeze when Shields are down as well?

Be waiting for your response and have a great day!

Have you tried turning off/on hardware acceleration?
