Two days ago, from one day to to another, my Google Chrome started to have a problem with running any sorts of flash streams (audio and video). For example, when I start a youtube video, there's the image, but no sound, and after exactly 11 seconds, the image freezes. When I jump in the video's timeline, the video starts again (still without sound), and, after 11 seconds, passes out again. Audio streams like built-in mp3 flash players on webpages or services like soundcloud etc. don't work at all. Funny thing is that I didn't change anything at all, no new programs, no deinstallations, hell, I didn't even restart my computer. It worked one evening, I went to bed, and the next day, it did this.
Things I've done so far:
- Tried it in Firefox -> everything works, but as I want to use Chrome, that doesn't help me much
- Fiddled with the Flash player's "hardware acceleration" options -> didn't do shit
- Rebooted -> nope
- Reinstalled the Adobe flash player plugin -> it seems that Chrome has it's own built-in player, since the deinstallation didn't affect the browser at all (unlike to Firefox which then complained about not having the needed plugin installed)
- Reinstalled Chrome -> didn't work
Is anyone else encounting such problems? Might someone have a solution for this problem? Thanks
EDIT: Solved. I just deactivated the built-in flash plugin. Seems that was the little bastard.
