Shockwave crashing

Mar 26, 2010 7:47 PM

Shockwave is causing Firefox, IE7 and Chrome to crash.  I uninstalled it and re-installed it and it still won't work.  No matter what type of video I want to watch, if it's powered by Shockwave, my browser will crash.  Any ideas?    

 

 

Thanks in advance.

    The Shockwave plugin doesn't commonly manage video. Are you sure you're not confusing it for the Flash Player?

    I have the same problem. I get a yellow/gold line that says "The following plug-in has crashed:shockwave Flash". It started a couple of weeks ago and happened rarely but yesterday and today it has crashed several times and I am tired of re-booting my computer just to get it to work for an hour or so.

    I searched the internet and there are hundreds of people with this same problem. My Google Chrome (6.0.472.63) is up to date. On Firefox, it shows Shockwave Flash 10.1.82.76. Firefox has an update - Adobe DLM http://platformdl.adobe.com/NOS/getPlusPlus/1.6/gp.xpi

    This gave me a ZIP file With a file - install.rdf but I get a "Windows can't open this file" message. Can't get any of the other files to do anything either.

    OK - I just finished re-installing Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe Shockwave Player 11.5.8.612. I had to close Firefox to do this and I just checked Chrome and that ugly white puzzle piece is staring at me again with the plug-in crash message so this is not a solution.

    I have the same problem on Chrome with a Constant Shockwave crash while I am playing Facebook Games. I quick search on the net shows this is a growing problem. I would say it could of been a chrome problem but since you are having this with other browsers it has to be something with Shockwave. Has anyone tried going back to previous versions? I wanted to try this but first do a clean uninstall using Adobes uninstall program.

    "Shockwave Flash" is Flash Player, not Shockwave Player.  Try disabling Hardware Acceleration (Flash Player Settings).

    Why is everybody posting their Flash Player problems in the Shockwave Player forum?

    I have WIN7 and have the same problem. From what I understand Google is

    aware of the problem and working on a fix. But I found crash messages from

    over 1 year ago so they are not working very fast.

    Try using Opera or Firefox and see if that helps. I love Google Chrome but

    it appears that is where the problem is.

    If I can't get the crashes to stop I will uninstall Chrome.

    Today, I got the message "The following plug-in has crashed: Shockwave Flash" using the Google Chrome browser. It didn't show the graphics of the advert, that's all, no great crashing sounds etc. All was fine in Internet Explorer 9.

    There is a fix in Chrome. See "theholidayferret" posting in http://www.google.co.uk/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=0d782f19a7a1 a9ec&hl=en&fid=0d782f19a7a1a9ec00049e45a2cf030c&hltp=2

    This fix worked for me.
