M1 Pro and M1 Max MacBook Pros Crash While Playing HDR YouTube Videos

MacRumors is reporting that some 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro owners have complained of crashes when watching HDR YouTube videos. Watching an HDR YouTube video in Safari then scrolling through comments resulted in a kernel error, according to one reader. Apparently, watching YouTube in full screen and then exiting full screen mode can also cause the error. The issue appears to be affecting mostly 16GB machines, though 32GB and 64GB models may also be buggy. MacRumors staffers were able to confirm the issue as well. It’s possible that macOS Monterey 12.1 beta may fix the problem.
