Hi, i have recently developed a standalone Flash entertainment system, containing Flash games and screensavers etc., i have also included a third party mp3 player.
The problem i have is the PC is left switched on daily and the system is used quite heavily, i.e mp3's playing in background while screen savers are displayed and games are played.
Everything starts fine but after a few hours the flash animations slow down to about 2 or 3 frames per second, then the PC will finally crash.
What may be causing this?
Flash isn`t exactly a Pro when it comes to garbage collection. So a running application will constantly feed on your systems memory (it always goes up, never down). Best way to avoid these problems is, to make a task that every 2-3 hours closes tha application and restarts it. There is really nothing you can do about it codewise.
