Flash player crashes when playing long videos

Postby greywalk » Wed Jul 31, 2013 21:41

Hi,

Flash player crashes in Firefox if I try to play videos longer than 30 min. Sayaon Gnome 3 Shell, Flash player version 11,2,202,297

Any ideas why this happens and how to prevent it from crashing? Thanks.

A mi me pasa también, cuando pongo un video se sube el uso del CPU y se calienta la máquina, sin importar si es video de YOUTUBE o DALEPLAY

I cannot really give an answer to your questions, but you might want to try the following:

- Use youtube-dl to download the video. In your browser it pollutes your cache anyway, so you why not download it altogether?
- Try it in a different browser (to make sure it's not a browser problem)
- Try videos of different formats (e.g. flv and mp4)

I tried playing videos in Chrome - crashes the same way, so it's not browser-related.

same issue here, no flash video. Trying an "equo install kde-meta chromium firefox adobe-flash --empty" one more time.

It may be related to /tmp being ramfs sized 100 MB. Try changing it's size in /etc/fstab and see whether it'll work.

I set the size to 400 Mb and it seems the problem's fixed now. Thank you.
