How to Fix YouTube Video Crashes?

World's top video sharing website YouTube crashes while watching videos. There is obviously something wrong with your PC's system configurations. In this tutorial we'll discuss solutions for this issue.

The hardware acceleration feature in Windows may cause YouTube video crashing problem. Disable the hardware acceleration as below:

1. Click the Start button, select Control Panel.
2. Press F3 key of your keyboard.
3. Type "Personalization" in the Search Box.
4. Open it from the Search Results displayed in the Control Panel window.
5. Click Display settings | Advanced settings.
6. Click the Troubleshooting tab.
7. Click Change settings | Continue.
8. Now disable the hardware acceleration feature.
9. Click the OK button, and then restart your computer.

Remember that DLLs/ ActiveX file registration entries are corrupted. Use the ZombieSoftFix. Check for the registration entries of those files and resolve any issues that are found. I bet after restarting the PC it'll work normal.

Browser extensions are also known as plug-ins and add-ons. Malfunctioning and incompatible browser extensions cause your browser to crash repeatedly.

1. Open Google Chrome.
2. Click the Wrench icon.
3. Select Tools | Extensions.
4. Disable all the extensions displayed in the new page.

Sandbox is turned on as default. It runs with Google Chrome as default. As it's a security feature there arise conflicts between this feature and the browser. Run Chrome again after disabling the sandbox feature.

1. Exit Google Chrome.
2. Right click the desktop shortcut of the browser.
3. Select Properties.
4. Click the Shortcut tab.
5. Add the following argument in the Target textbox:
"--no-sandbox"
(Enter the above command without any quotes)
6. Click Apply, and then OK.
7. Double click the desktop shortcut to re-open the application again.

The hardware acceleration feature in Windows may cause YouTube video crashing problem. Disable the hardware acceleration as below:

1. Click the Start button, select Control Panel.
2. Press F3 key of your keyboard.
3. Type "Personalization" in the Search Box.
4. Open it from the Search Results displayed in the Control Panel window.
5. Click Display settings | Advanced settings.
6. Click the Troubleshooting tab.
7. Click Change settings | Continue.
8. Now disable the hardware acceleration feature.
9. Click the OK button, and then restart your computer.
10. After successfully changing the above settings and system configurations, you may have to restart the computer. This is because the new settings will take effects only after a system reboot is initiated.
