YouTube stuttering on Windows but not Linux

Description of the issue:
YouTube videos are stuttering or sometimes crashes then restarts.

How can this issue be reproduced?
I’m not sure, it only happens occasionally. Sometimes it plays fine but sometimes it stutters.

Brave Version:
89.0.4389.105 but has been happening in 88 as well.

Additional Information:
This only happens with Brave on Windows but not on Linux Mint .

Try and update the Windows Graphics drivers

Already did so but it comes back after awhile.

do u mind me asking what graphics card you have

I have an RTX 2060 on desktop.

I have since found a probable solution for my system. Changing ANGLE backend in chrome://flags to OpenGL seem to have fixed this issue for me.

There was also an reddit post for Chrome which seem to have a similar issue fixed by the same method. Another post seem to identify the issue is caused by VP9 60fps videos on YouTube.

I will update if there is any changes.
