How to Fix Shockwave Flash Plugin Crashes in Google Chrome
In this post, I will tell you an effective way to fix this crash issue.
Why Shockwave Flash Plugin Crashes in Chrome
This happens because your system has two versions of flash player. Internet Explorer, FireFox or other web browsers need Adobe Flash Player installation in your system in order to display flash content. But Google Chrome comes with built in flash player called Pepperflash. Thus, you have Pepperflash player and Adobe Plash player in your system. Whenever the conflict occurs it shows “The following plug-in has crashed: Shockwave Flash”
How to Fix Shockwave Flash Crashes in Chrome
The simplest way to fix this problem would be that you disable Shockwave Flash plug-in inside Chrome. To do this, type chrome://plugins in Google Chrome’s address bar and search for the entry “Adobe Flash Player /Shockwave Flash.” Click on Details to see the details. It can be found at the top right side of the browser.
That’s it! Once you disable the PepperFlash player from your Google Chrome, you should stop seeing the Shockwave Flash crash errors.
Check for conflicting Software
If the above method did not work for you, you can try checking the conflicting software. Some software on your computer can conflict with Google Chrome and cause crash. For checking this, type chrome:conflicts into address bar and press enter. Here, you can check if there is any software conflicts. In case you find any, try removing that software.
