Hi There!

I have ongoing issues with Chrome and Shockwave where the plugin crashes all the time, perhaps 10x a day. I have tried reinstalling etc, no difference, seems like a common problem, anyone else have a workaround or fix for it?

Their is a thread here on Geekzone all about it, had the same problem a while back.

It isn't anything to do with shockwave but rather Flash player.
It seems their is an conflict between Chromes in built Flash player and the one for all other browsers.

Their are a number of options including going into about:config and disabling either one of these but none of these options worked for me.

In the end I just uninstalled the external Flash player as I only ever use Chrome.

Thanks I might just do that. I have the occasional time I need IE for other reasons though so it's a PITA!

But do you need Flash when you use IE?

As said... Search and you shall find. Basically there are two Flash plugins enabled on your Chrome browser. Disable one, and the problem will disappear.

After all these updates (hey, Chrome 18!) they haven't fixed this thing.

Yes it's frustrating to say the least

It might be worth your time trying the options here: http://www.howtogeek.com/103292/how-to-fix-shockwave-flash-crashes-in-google-chrome/

They didn't help me but they usually fix the problem.
