YouTube lag, AMD drivers suspected

Description of the issue:
YouTube videos start to drop frames and lag to the point of crashing but only when the video is displaying its progress bar. This behaviour coincides with me updating drivers to my AMD graphics card however video playback with the new drivers is still normal when using regular Google Chrome.

Exact URL of the website in question:

No

Is there a specific Shields configuration that causes the site to break? If so, tell us that configuration. (yes/no):
No

Does the site work as expected when using Chrome?
Yes

Brave version (check About Brave):

Are you using hardware acceleration (under brave://settings/system)? Does it make any difference, if you turn it on/off?
