Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hello fellas!

I use the internet a lot and often visit video sites. I however, have one problem with  Youtube.
I installed Google Chrome on my system recently and it works just fine.  However, it seems to repel Youtube.

I get the following error:

The following plug-in has crashed: Shockwave Flash 


Did anyone face the same problem in the past? Do tell me.  Is it a hardware problem?

Google Chrome plug-in crashes when using YouTube


It is definitely not related to hardware.  I myself,  experienced this occasionally.  Believe me, updating the flash plug-in did the job.  In case the problem persists, start re-installing Google Chrome, as some applications might have corrupted it. These crashes could also be a result of any activity performed by some applications like Cheat Engine. These applications completely let the users handle Flash components like  Speed etc.  So, make sure that you never experiment these applications on Google Chrome.

Google Chrome plug-in crashes when using YouTube



I have read your problem. It’s regarding Google Chrome crashing down while using Youtube sometimes, right?

  1. Well first of all, I would like to tell you that the Google Chrome which you are using may be corrupted or may have been downloaded from an unknown or not trusted site. This basically means it's a faulty software. Now, all you need to do is go to and search for the latest version of Google Chrome. When you get the setup file, the download will automatically start and the new Google Chrome will be automatically installed in your computer. Please restart your computer and hopefully all the problems will be resolved. Please do try this first, otherwise try another procedure.
  2. Please go to and search for the latest version of A) Adobe flash Player, B) Adobe Shockwave player. Please download these two programs in your computer. After downloading the programs please install both the softwares in your computer. After installing, please restart your computer again so that the changes can be made to the existing settings.

Now try using Google Chrome again and this time I am sure you won’t face any problem.

I hope I have made myself clear on the various ideas and processes I have told you. If you are not clear on any part,  please do not hesitate to reply me back. I will try my best to solve your problem again.
