Description of the issue:
I have just migrated from a windows 7 desktop to a brand new shiny windows 11 xps 8950 desktop, with GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card.
Seems there’s an issue with youtube video playback. Many will stall after just a few seconds. Video/sound stop, then if the stall persists long enough, the video window goes blank while the spinning circle continues. May or may not eventually resume playing.
Hardware graphics acceleration on/off doesn’t seem to matter (Though may affect frequency of stall.) Brave shields up or down doesn’t seem to matter.
Looking at the brave task monitor, I have not seen any extraordinary (100% or greater) cpu spikes while the stall is occurring.
How can this issue be reproduced?
Go to Youtube.com
I have good results getting a predictable stall within a few seconds with this video:
But it’s certainly not the only one. Many of the low-res Brazil 66 videos (even those which display nothing more than an album cover) will stall as well.
Workaround is use use Firefox or Edge - no stalling there.
