PC crashes when streaming video... but not on all sites

Hello,

Firefox is causing my entire PC to crash when I watch videos on Twitch or Picarto. This does not happen on Netflix, Youtube, or Prime Video, and it does not happen on other browsers. It also doesn't happen when I watch someone stream on Discord.

This crash is completely unique to Firefox. No other program in my library causes this.

The way it goes is, I'll be watching someone stream, the PC will lock up for 2-3 seconds (the sound also locks up), and then it reboots. No blue screen, no crash dump, and no crash report in Firefox either.

The crash can happen 30 minutes into watching, or 2 hours into watching. There's no rhyme or reason to it.

It can happen with no other tabs open, or twelve other tabs open.

I'm on Windows10, I have 16GB of RAM, my GPU is a 2060 Super, and my GPU is a Ryzen 7 1700X. Nothing is over or under clocked.

I've disabled hardware acceleration to see if it helps today, but in the meantime I'd really like to know if this is a known issue or a common problem.

Specific you tube music live stream. Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHW1oY26kxQ

This live stream crashes in FF always. Other similar types of live streams work just fine. This specific live stream works just fine in all other browsers. I have tested with add ons, without add ons, on windows, on Mac and they all crash on this specif live stream.

At this point I have no idea how to further try and resolve this besides use Chrome.

I like to watch live youtube videos at work (live radio stations like ChilledCow) and it often crashes. Watching normal YouTube videos aren't a problem, but I will get error reports where I have to refresh the page often.

I've tried changing the hardware acceleration settings and the about.config [media.webm.enabled] settings to false. Any ideas? Thanks for your help

This problem is driving me crazy! It was working until few days ago.

I can't watch any videos from this website/domain: http://redeglobo.globo.com/videos/ Things I've tried: - private browsing - safe mode - new profile/refresh - portable version - uninstall/reinstall - older versions - uninstalled kaspersky/windows defender is disabled - HOSTS file is clean(Windows 7 x64)

The thing is, the ads load but not the video content. If the ad is long, an error message appears while the audio is still playing in the background. Another computer in the same network plays them fine. All other browsers can play these videos, this problem only happens in Firefox. I've tested a virtual machine in this same computer and then it works. Is there anything else I can do to try to fix this?

Firefox console shows these errors: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://vodstreaming02a.video.globo.com/r90_720/v7/e8/93/1e/7164945_1e25dd21ab308227e9961ad4c2a44399a4dc60ff/7164945-manifest.ism/7164945-manifest-audio_por_1=128025-video_por=1967000.m3u8?hls_client_manifest_version=4.

Firefox Version 63.0 (64-bit) Home build PC, 480GB SSD, 2 x 2TB HD's, 8GB Ram.

I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)

Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I have tried to install Adobe Flash Player, but does not seam to work or download. On Ch 4 web page I pressed Allow, but say that I should install Flash Player !

Please could anyone advice me what I can do, or what I have done wrong.

Regards, Richard.

Heyho,

Any attempt of streaming a video on Netflix results in an error window showing the following code: F7701-1003

This occurs only on Netflix. YouTube works fine. Other sites that stream media too. Yes FF is up to date. Yes DRM-content is enabled. Yes Widevine runs on the latest version: 1.4.8.1008 Yes Widevine is "always active"

Thanks for your time! Best regards, ibudiful

Firefox will no longer stream a TV show or keep up even with a 100m internet connection. I messed with it's settings for many hours and asked the community but no response so I tried out Edge which is Unbelievably Fast and can open multiple tabs and stream each show on each tab to completion and even watch them with no internet just like firefox used to be. I was loyal firefox user for many years but no more.

My PC runs on OS Windows 10.

Process: AMD Athlon II X4 650 Processor 3.20 GHz

8.0 GB RAM

64 Bit OS

I am able to watch videos, except for LIVE streaming, at Youtube....No matter what browser I use; the live stream are having same issue as below: no picture but the sound is there.

On other sites, I can see the video and hear it only if I use Internet Explorer. If I use Firefox I only get the sound. Here is an example of a site with this problem:

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/jimmy-kimmel-haunted-best-picture-mix-2018-oscars-52545828

Another Website I have this problem is at Amazon.com. I can watch the actual Movies on all browsers with no problems; but if I watch a Trailer of a Movie on Amazon.com, I get no picture, just sound.....Except both the picture and sound work on trailers if I'm using IE.

I have reinstalled browsers, Checked installs on Flash. Firefox really runs slow on OS Win 10.

What has happened with Mozilla? A month ago, there were no problems when watching stream video 1080p 60fps. But now it is impossible to do it: constant and long freezes. I have noticed that CPU load is almost 100% when watching stream. I have recorded the system parameters for 10 minutes for the same stream via Mozilla and Edge and the difference is great (see the attached files). I do not know what parameters were a month ago for Mozilla but definitely I never noticed any problems. Hope this info will be helpful to fix the problem.

I have task scheduler set up to open a stream on the web using Firefox, and then I have task scheduler open another program I use to record the audio. However, I was having some issues with streams stopping before I wanted them to, so I started occasionally resetting Firefox, and that helped. However, I still have issues if I open more than 1 stream in a day. Is there a way to make Firefox automatically reset itself?
