    It keeps crashing on me constantly, I'm so sick of it. Is there anything else I can use to play flash? Flash is so fail, it hasn't worked right or reliably in years..
    Idc if it's some hack method or w/e.. Anything is better than this.
    It even crashes my entire system sometimes because it hangs so bad I have to hard reboot.. What garbage..
    Adobe, you are fail...

    I have a wedding to perform, I'll be back later, thank you guys for any info. :)

    Flash can't do that. You got a hardware/driver problem.

    This. I'd try disabling hardware acceleration and see what happens. I've had flash f up a lot because I was using my GPU to fold and the folding was starving flash player if resources.

    Flash can indeed crash your system but I've only seen it happen with the help of buggy video drivers. Was an issue with 4670s up until I think 11.4

    Hmm, ok I'm going to try a clean install of drivers and some driver sweeper action.
    Thanks fellas. ^^
    I also disabled hardware acceleration but it kept crashing.

    Did a clean install after running driver sweeper in safe mode. Uninstalled flash using the uninstaller and reinstalled it.
    Will let ya know.. ^^

    EDIT: So far so good.. Didn't crash on the video I just watched. Maybe it was just driver related, to soon to tell.
