Youtube on chromium crashes after a few hours watching

Fri Aug 18, 2017 2:05 pm

I am experiencing a strange behaviour when chromium is connected to youtube.com....after some time (two hours maybe) streaming stops and the only way to have it running again is to reboot the system. No chance even if I try to change the stream, I get a running circle but stream is never fully loaded.

Running uname -a
Linux raspberrypi 4.9.43-v7+ on a fully updated system

switched to stretch, but still in new release Youtube plays for about 3 hours and then there is a kind of crash, where a stream is frozen and even if I stop the browser (epiphany) I have to reboot the Raspberry

had reported to chromium-sub-forum months ago, but no one respond.
thought, none of Devs had time to play youtube for hours to test.

Return to “Raspberry Pi OS”
