Youtube crashes Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I keep hoping that it's fixed in the latest SP release, but I have a problem with watching Youtube videos.

At a random point OW freezes up, and the OmniGroupCrashCatcher window pops up.

I'd really hate to have to launch Safari or FireFox just to watch Youtube content, so is there something I can do to change the behavior that OW has with Youtube?

Is it just me?

Smithcraft:Can you send in some feedback to support so we can track down your crash reports. These might shed some light on what's going on here.
I've sent them each time this has happened, so they should be there. I pretty much mention YouTube in each one of the user comments.

I found a couple crashes from you. One of the engineers downstairs thought we had this fixed but perhaps it isn't completely yet. It has something to do with flash and local security in WebKit.

It doesn't look like we're getting too many reports of this though. What version of Flash are you on? Not sure if that makes a difference or not.
I thought that the issues might have been from an older version of Flash, so I updated my Flash install just about a month or so ago, so it should be the current version.

Fwiw, Flash player has been updated at least once (yesterday) since then, if not twice.
Ok, I updated my Flash install on Sunday, and I'm running the current SP so I'll give it a try later in the day.

Seems to be working pretty well now.

I'll pipe up if I see something again.

Well, it wasn't working out with 5.6. So I just gave up on watching YouTube vids in OW, and just watching them in Safari.

Now, with the 5.7 SPs everything is great in YouTube land! Still kinda leery though.
