JWPlayer crashing in Google Chrome only17 replies [Last post]
Since Friday evening, our JWPlayer implementation has been crashing on Google Chrome only. IE, FF, and Safari test fine. Anyone else experiencing this?
What happens is the video player loads just fine, and if the video is set to autostart that works just fine. But as soon as you interact with the player by clicking anywhere inside the player frame, it crashes the page.
After extensive testing, it appears that videos embedded using the older Embed/Object methods work without crashing. But videos embedded using the newer JS methods (JW Embedder, SWFobject) are unstable and crash frequently (it doesn't happen 100% of the time, but almost all the time).
The crashing has been tested and confirmed on three different machines running Chrome. Prior to Friday, all videos were playing without issue in Chrome. So I'm wondering if there was some kind of Flash/Chrome update causing stuff to choke, but that might be a wild guess.
We've reinstalled the swf files and swfObject/JWPlayer JS files onto our servers, and made sure the JS files are properly linked to the pages. Hasn't seemed to help.
This is a development environment so I hesitate to post a link unless absolutely necessary...
