Description of the issue:
After playing a graphically more intense game (Horizon Zero Dawn), YouTube, Twitch, Reddit, Discord or any other form of video-playback is extremely laggy and runs on like 2fps, but the audio is completely fine. Otherwise everything is working normally. Only happens with Brave, this issue doesn’t occur in Chrome or Edge.
How can this issue be reproduced?
Play a graphically more intense game
Try to play a YouTube video afterwards
Brave Version (check About Brave):
Version 1.39.122 Chromium: 102.0.5005.115 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I already tried:
Disabling hardware acceleration in Brave settings
Creating both a guest and a completely new profile with no extensions or similar
Re-installing my latest GPU drivers
Completely rebooting my PC
The attached video shows how it looks like (no audio because not directly necessary). I can move my cursor around without any lags or so, just the player has heavy issues. Task Manager isn’t showing any unusual spikes in cpu/gpu/ram-usage either, it also isn’t any internet connection issue.
This issue seems to be a different one, I never really even saw this autoplay info/permission field appearing and after checking in my Brave settings it’s enabled anyways. Turning it off/on again doesn’t change anything. My issue isn’t about the YouTube player pausing, it is about it being very laggy (see my attached video).
It also happens always, regardless if I change volume or quality, I’ve just changed the quality of the YouTube video in my example to show that it isn’t a problem of like slow internet speed or similar.
I’m not really seeing any unusual or high activity, from usage it’s very similar to just a normal Google Chrome session where I don’t have stutters. I have any games closed, this stuttering is occurring independently from any other process, it even happens directly after I start/reboot my pc.
My PCs Task Manager isn’t showing any unusual usage either.
