    Crashes when streaming video. No help from Mint Forum. Maybe here?


    Hi all,

    I love my Mint but cannot seem to correct the issue of it crashing randomly when playing video from the web.
    I have posted the issue twice at the Mint Forum and never gotten a reply.

    The behaviour of the crashes are random, could be after 10 seconds of play or an hour. Sometimes it just hangs up and I
    have to restart X other times it will crash and go to the login
    screen.

    I replaced my memory thinking that might be the cause and have tried all options on the Ubuntu forum.

    Now I am clueless and not very experienced with linux, so I hope someone here can point me in the right direction for a solution or at least the cause.

    Here are some specs on my computer.

    -Computer-
    Processor : 2x AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+
    Memory : 2056MB (937MB used)
    Operating System : Linux Mint 11 Katya
    User Name : fxaddict (fxaddict)
    Date/Time : Fri 21 Oct 2011 02:17:36 PM CDT
    -Display-
    Resolution : 2304x1024 pixels
    OpenGL Renderer : GeForce 8400 GS/PCI/SSE2
    X11 Vendor : The X.Org Foundation
    -Multimedia-
    Audio Adapter : HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia
    -Input Devices-
    Power Button
    Power Button
    Logitech USB RECEIVER
    Logitech Logitech USB Keyboard
    HDA NVidia Headphone
    -Printers (CUPS)-
    Deskjet-F2400-series : <i>Default</i>
    PDF
    -SCSI Disks-
    ATA Maxtor 6L200M0
    HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH22LS40

    Thanks in advance
    Mike

    There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with your specs. Are you viewing these videos in a browser? If so have you tried a different browser to see if it's the video or the browser?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    What version of Firefox and Flash player. Flashplayer 11 does not support Firefox 3.6 according to Adobe employees.

    Read online at Adobe Forums: Flash Player 11 constantly crashing on every Website with Flashcontent...

    Many thanks, Alex, for providing the fonts to me. I am not on the Flash team, but am in Type Development, thus my interest in fonts, and my experience that "unknown" fonts may be malformed. I am using a MacBook Pro 17-inch running Mac OS X 10.6.8. I installed the fonts into my ~/Library/Fonts folder, and Flash now crashes on a regular basis. Attached is a screenshot of what I am experiencing in Chrome. So, if you simply remove the KozGo*.ttf files (use "% rm ~/Library/Fonts/KozGo*.ttf" to remove them), the problem may go away.
    so did some looking in my AntiX core install Laptop

    They say the Adobe KozGo fonts are the culprit for flash causing browsers to crash (on MacOS). Bring that up in the Mint forums. Maybe someone there knows where to find the KozGo font file that needs deleting. Hopefully I pointed you in the right direction for your own google search. This is the best I can do for you fxaddict.

    Edit: You might try also disabling hardware acceleration in flash player. Google on how to do it if you don't know how.

    Happy trails and Good Luck, Rok

    Which video card do you have? Is the driver installed?
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Good find Roky. A quick glance through Synaptic on LMDE didn't show any obvious candidates. Another suggestion I found is to disable the screen saver as that can cause problems with Flash videos
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    They say the Adobe KozGo fonts are the culprit for flash causing browsers to crash (on MacOS). Bring that up in the Mint forums. Maybe someone there knows where to find the KozGo font file that needs deleting. Hopefully I pointed you in the right direction for your own google search. This is the best I can do for you fxaddict.

    Edit: You might try also disabling hardware acceleration in flash player. Google on how to do it if you don't know how.

    Happy trails and Good Luck, Rok[/QUOTE]

    I have an Nvidea GEforce 8500 with the recommended driver from "additional drivers" in Mint. So as far as I know I have the correct driver installed.
    unless there is a way to use the driver from the installation disk that I am not aware of.

    Thanks for your reply.
