Description: I recently upgraded to gnome 40.0 and using wayland as my display server. I use brave as my default browser and I noticed that when playing this video ( brave crashes and freezes the entire system. So I installed chromium, disabled hw acceleration and played this video. It still crashes in chromium, however I think chromium handles the crash better. It crashes the tab or logs out of the gnome shell instead of freezing the entire system. I have only tested this twice though. I have attached the journalctl -xe output.

Additional info:
version : 89.0.4389.114-1
config : none, vanilla install

Steps to reproduce:
Run chromium in gnome 40 wayland and play this video ( for a while. I was playing at 1080p and 2x speed.

This happens in xorg too. I also tried playing another youtube video, the result is the same. Firefox also crashes trying to play the video. I suspect this is a gnome-shell issue.
