My computer freezes when I watch YouTube (flash) videos

“I didn’t had problems before but for the last 2 mounts my computer freezes when I start, pause or replay a YouTube video.” This a message I received from Tony via our contact form.

This problem is common in the last mounts because of a new feature called hardware accelerator is introduced in flash player. This can be easily disabled by right click on any flash content (video), select settings and make sure the hardware acelleration box is unchecked.

Using steps:

1. Go to any YouTube video and right click

2. Make sure the hardware acelleration box is unchecked.

This should stop your problems.
