I was just watching Youtube on my Chrome after the latest update on my Windows 7. And the Chrome suddenly stopped working. I tried opening and it crashed again and again. And I went to ask my friend about this and he had the same problem on Windows 8 too. So, it was might be like some chrome problem or the flash problem. I re-installed both Chrome and Flash plugin but it started crashing again and again. So, I went to the Chrome Application directory: C:\Documents and Settings\<
Then I tried to think more and more. The video used to jam and Audio used to continue. And after that I found when ever you run the mouse on the flash window, the flash plays everything. But if the focus gets lost the video play is stored in Buffer memory and with the overflow it crashes. After hat I tried it to unfocus and found that in the previous stream, I used to unfocus as I used to do some parallel works.
So, this can’t be the ultimate solution but can be seemed to have a point that you can Click on the taskbar while you start playing a video rather focusing on the video.
Enjoy youtube. 🙂
