I've been having massive issues with Flash crashing on me for a while now. It's incredibly frustrating to be two hours and god knows how many minutes into a podcast to have flash crash, and I have to jog through half an hour of content till I find where I was.
I've tried everything I can think of, reinstalling to make sure it's properly installed and up to date, making sure there aren't any conflicts within Chrome, using different browsers, etc.
But nothing has really helped. I still get regular crashes.
I'm using Chrome, on Windows 8. Everything is up to date.
This was happening to me a lot a few months ago and it turned out that the version of Flash that's baked into Chrome was conflicting with the standalone version. Going into about:plugins and disabling the built-in version solved the problem.
