Youtube Videos Flashing; Unwatchable!

Description of the issue: Youtube videos are flashing randomly. Turned off all plugins, seems to have really helped. I think Adblock may have been causing an issue. Videos still flash randomly, but much less often. Seems to be connected to the appearance/disappearance of video playback buttons…maybe flash settings are the issue?? Seems to only be an issue on Youtube.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open Youtube
  2. Watch a video

Expected result: Remove random flashes from youtube videos

Brave Version( check About Brave): 1.26.67

Additional Information: Have a nice day

Hey longie772,

Can you turn off hardware acceleration in your browser settings and see if that fixes the issue?

Hey Adrian_02.

Thank for a solve - it works. But what is problem with a hardware acceleration in Brave? Will it be fix in future? Also, the any sites with video have this flashing in Brave while a hardware acceleration is on.
If I use Firefox 89 for example and have on a hardware acceleration - don’t se flashing video on any sites

it is a known issue that the team is capturing data on and hoping to resolve in future releases – appreciate your understanding:


That worked! Thanks!
