This one will be for the super genius. After researching computer crashes due to streaming video, I heard many responses all of which I tried. These included replacing power supply, hard drive (I upgraded to SSD), Video card, cooling system (I am now fluid cooled and never above 58 degrees). I even resat chip radiators on the MOBO. Went from Windows 7 64 to 32 bit (I am back to 64 again) Basically I have a new computer and then I found the easy solution.
I reverted back to an older version of Flash (10.1.85.3 to be exact) Tested each version on the way down, and this one works perfect, and has done so for weeks when I couldn't stream video for more than a few minutes before.
The issue at hand is that this flash is soon to be unsupported by our favorite streaming site (www.abc.com). I would like to use a newer version. Turning off hardware acceleration did not help before. I thought I was good at computers, but need a real expert genius to fix this one. I have seen this issue all over the internet, so the person who comes up with the solution will have his name (handle) splashed all over. I want to help other avoid the headache I have had, and will post the solution in the myriad of places I found others with the same issue. If you are good at computers, the world needs you.
Thank you for the help.
