    Chrome & Flash

    I'm getting intermittent crashing of flash while watching streaming videos my work around is to close and restart Chrome.
    Anyone else experiencing this problem and found a solution?

    Thanks Jimmy

    Is both Chrome (latest download from Google) and Flash (latest download from Adobe, link on right) up to date with the latest release versions? I would ensure you have the latest released version of both.

    I believe Flash is built-in to Chrome. There is no need for a separate download of Flash updates.

    This may be worth reading........
    Google Refreshes Chrome 9 for Security and Flash

    "Chrome is the only browser that directly integrates Adobe Flash with the browser, as opposed to requiring users to download and maintain a separate plug-in. "

    I stand corrected. In that case I would suspect the problem is in the installed Chrome browser. It may be corrupted. My secondary browser is Chrome 11 beta. Seems to work quite well, but it seems every couple of weeks a new release is available. This is probably the case with the beta version of Chrome. Once the final release is sent updates will not be so forthcoming.

    Another nice feature of having Flash built into Chrome is the ability thru Chrome's Tools>Task Manager is to end the Flash process when Mem/CPU usage is high. Flash will auto restart within Chrome as needed. No need to manually unplug and then reactivate the plug-in. A very convenient feature for reclaiming system resources.
