Google Chrome Streaming Video Issue

My friend tried to stream live events from But the problem is that the video is buffering a lot. he is not able to stream at all. The video buffering is taking ages

He has the latest version of google chrome And the default plugin is installed in it

I am not using Chrome So I hardly know the solution

One more thing he has a really high speed connectivity of about 7.1Mbps So the speed seems okayish

The strange thing is that I am able to stream the same site in Firefox in the same system Only in Chrome the site is not opening any possible reasons for the issue. Do post

Thread moved to gadgets/software/apps section.

What I want to know if your friend is using a vanilla installation of Chrome or has add-ons installed? I'd recheck if any of the addons is interfering with the buffers. Chrome could be a huge memory eater at times, especially with badly coded addons running; which might affect overall experience.

His version says that the ADOBE plugin is installed by default in his system.

He has no extra add ons installed in it seems I am not sure about the Vanilla installation

Yeah Size was nearly 400MB not sure about other details I will try to get him hooked here

Reinstalling is also not working out What actually is wrong with the current version of Chrome

You need healthy connection with good bandwidth for Live streaming. I don't think anything is wrong with Chrome, as Flash is installed within chrome-browser itself (pepper-flash).

chrome as such is considered a faster browser. please perform a speed test . you can use

Guys come on read the first post I have a speed test result of well over 1Mbps as the worst case scenario

And on the other hand I am able to stream it in Firefox without any trouble

Maybe, Live streaming ain't supported by Pepper-flash ? Try installing Chromium it doesn't comes with Pepper-flash, if video streams in Chromium & Firefox then it means that Pepper-flash ain't supporting live streaming.
