Anyone else have this problem with Chrome? Like a lot of people I watch a youtube or blip.tv or livestream while doing something else too. I usually pop out on window with the video playing and continue browsing.
It happens at least 2-3 times a day where Flash crashes, and I have to reload the page. Pretty annoying.
Try firefox or IE. They use an external flash handler, Chrome has one built in. If IE/Firefox works, it’s probably time to reinstall Chrome. If they exhibit the same issues, maybe sound card/video card driver issue.
After a reinstall of Linux, I’ve had problems with flash myself. Not just with Chrome, but firefox as wel, where after a few hours of having a browser open, if I view a video, the sound is either choppy or stuck in a loop like a skipping CD or vinyl. Only fixes if I close and reopen. Never had this happen before.
Im having something similar I guess. Most of the times, when watching Youtube videos, my PC will get stuck and show BSOD, and I’ll have to restart. From what I can read of the BSOD, is a nv****.dll problem, I supossed it was caused by a bad driver installation, but tried a clean reinstall and nothing changed. I use Chrome most of the time, but I think this happens also with Firefox, etc.
One important note, if I turn fullscreen video on right as the video starts, nothing will happen - video will run just fine, the BSOD only happens when Im not watching full screen videos.
Sorry d3v, I meant to say after a video card driver reinstall. I’ve read in many places that you should delete nv… bla bla.dll before installing the new driver, but I dont know who to trust. If you know the right procedure for doing that, I will try your method and post results.
