That's my question and I am asking it because the shockwave flash player is crashing on Google Chrome on http://www.crunchyroll.com/nananas-buried-treasure/episode-4-dreams-and-ambitions-and-denial-and-attraction-653299?t=136 around the first advertisement and continues to crash no matter how many times I refresh the page and was working fine with the last 3 episodes.

This worked for me when I was having the same problem:

You need to add url tags to links as this forum doesn't add them automatically like normal forums would.

Okay after restarting Chrome it shows 2 files again. So I just go ahead and disable the shockwave flash player that is not being used by Chrome.

---
I eventually had to uninstall all Adobe Flash Players that Chrome did not install itself as the shockwave player started to crash again even with one of the players disabled on plug-ins.

My main question still stands though which hasn't been answered yet, from what I remember Crunchyroll wasn't always using shockwave player before and that isn't any better then the normal Adobe Flash Player it might actually be worse.

Even as a free user the site still has issues with stream interruptions and other nonsense that should have been fixed several months ago so Crunchyroll will never get a penny from me again. I would actually love a refund for the months I did pay for this service as I should be entitled to that since I received nothing but pathetic service.

I have only Adobe Flash Player 14 installed on this PC (for Firefox), and Crunchyroll works just fine. As noted in the linked article, the Shockwave installation includes Flash, but CR doesn't require the Shockwave.

Then why is Chrome reporting that Shockwave has crashed when Crunchyroll isn't supposed to be using it? It just crashed again when I have no other flash players installed besides what comes with Chrome.

You have Firefox not Chrome so unless you use Chrome you can't really talk.

I also have Chrome installed on both my systems.

Chrome includes its own built-in installation of Flash (sometimes referred to as Pepper Flash), so it would normally use that by default. It appears that at some point you've installed Shockwave and disabled the built-in installation of Flash. As noted before, Shockwave installations include Flash, so any Flash crash would then be reported as a crash of Shockwave.

It appears your real question should be "Why is Chrome using the Shockwave Flash Player?", not "So when did CR change to Shockwave Flash Player?"


Consider this: If CR required Shockwave, why would it work fine on a browser installation that doesn't have it?

"Uses" does not equal "requires".

If so, that would be part of your problem, as Chrome doesn't have Shockwave built-in, but does have Flash (which is also included in Shockwave).

Digging up an old thread, but I was wondering if you ever got it fixed. Kind of a coincidence because I'm having the exact same problem on the exact same episode of the show mentioned

YouTube hasn't used Flash for their video player in quite a while:
