YouTube Videos freeze in Google Chrome

All my efforts to love Chrome are moribund. I discovered that YouTube videos freeze in Chrome!

Is it just me or Google didn't do basic testing of Chrome? 😒

Windows XP SP3 + Chrome = works alright
Haven't tested it with Vista Home yet.

Youtube vids in Firefox used to freeze before some updates were applied. It would show the first frame, then stop even when the dark red bar loads to the end. It was a little annoying.. had to rely on IE to load vids, haha.

Biggie, have you cleared your cache? Use CCleaner to get rid of existing junk.

May be use a restore point before using CCleaner... I had a horrible experience with it once. I need to revert to restore point which was a bit old.

not only You tube... when ever I tried opening a PDF in CHROME it never opened up..I cursed thePDF files having complete trust on CHROME...
later when I opened in IE!! ala!!! they wokred fine ( I hated to believe PDF dint open in CHROME) and then Youtube... nothing happened when I used them... I again cursed my internet speed ans youtube... later realising that IE might work... and my doubts came right youtube opened in IE 😔


but now i am happy...
Google seems to have rectified both the bugs..

Did you use the registry cleaner option? I only used the default clean settings (which did not get rid of temporary system files as well). I havent had a problem so far.. but I suggest to everyone to avoid the registry cleaning options.

Use EasyCleaner for getting rid of old registry entries instead 😀 Of course, always make a back up! I never do since I'm a little lazy.. but I wonder how much luck I have left 😉

I guess Chrome's problems will rectify over time.. I doubt Google engineers would ignore issues just like that. Of course, thats IF people report the problems back to them!
