Youtube video freezing while audio plays

Description of the issue: Upon opening a YouTube video, I can clearly hear the audio playing normally. However, the video is frozen on the first frame and does not play until I make random changes to the window size/location ie switching between small and full-screen, and making the YouTube tab a separate window. Even this works only sporadically. I have had this issue for about a week, but it seems to have become worse. I checked the other post regarding extensions, but this method did not work. Any help is appreciated.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Attempting to play a YouTube video

Expected result: YouTube working normally, synchronized audio and video

Brave Version: Version 1.10.93 Chromium: 83.0.4103.106 (Official Build) (64-bit)

@daxrevenger,
I’m not seeing this behavior on my end using Windows 10 in Brave v1.10.93. Can you tell me what you have your Shields settings set to for Youtube.com?
