Couple of questions:
- Do you run flatpak version of Brave?
- Does Brave use hardware video decoding acceleration in your setup? Please run intel_gpu_top in the terminal when YouTube video is playing and share the same style “splitted” YT+Terminal screenshot.
intel gpu tools
1 sudo swupd bundle-add igt-gpu-tools
2 swupd search igt-gpu-tools
3 sudo intel_gpu_top
BRAVE (clear linux-rpm) (ubuntu-deb)
Thank you. Seems like no HW decode acceleration by default.
