Youtube lags while resizing video to full screen.
Gonna need more info from you.
- What OS are you on? If you’re on desktop, can you turn hardware acceleration off and see if that works?
- What version of Brave are you on?
I’m on Windows 10 OS, and brave Version 1.25.72 Chromium: 91.0.4472.101 (Official Build) (64-bit).
I’ve tried by turning off hardware acceleration and that didn’t work.
Okay, I want you to try 2 things:
- Try doing this in Chrome and see how it works.
- Try doing this in a new profile, since your settings will be the default on a new profile.
This issue persists on chrome too, but not in mozilla firefox.
If that is the case, then it is a Chromium issue. As such, you will have to wait for an update on their end for this to be resolved.
Don’t you face such issue?
I don’t usually watch videos in fullscreen, so I don’t really notice. I wasn’t on Windows when I saw this issue, but someone I know was, and he said that it lags very briefly for a moment while switching to fullscreen before going back to normal.
It appears to be a Chromium-specific issue. I accidentally found an extension that claims it resolves the issue.
Note 1: There is a positive review regarding the extension’s work in Brave.
Note 2: I don’t recommend using any extensions, it’s entirely up to you. I’m only sharing what I found, use at your own risk.
It works, it reduces the lag.
