YouTube is playing random videos automatically in background

Description of the issue:
Brave’s now playing Youtube videos automatically in the background. I think that it comes from the “control your music, videos, and more” thing. Even when I’m not on Youtube a video will start playing in the background… and everytime I have to go to the option and close that one random video.
I love Brave. Brave is the fastest browser that I’ve ever used but with this problem every 2 minutes I can’t keep using it… It’s just annoying

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Just wait and a random video will start in the background, you can see it from the “control your music, video, and more” thing… I don’t know if a Youtube tab needs to be open or idk…

Expected result:
Just solve it…

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Brave - 1.44.108 - Chromium 106.0.5249.103

A malicious extension might be doing it. Check your extensions.

Or there might be malware on your device. Scan your device via for free

i have this same issue, the only way i can get the videos to stop playing is by switching to another window of brave, i dont think it is a plugin
