Diablo® III

Diablo 3 freezes video players like Youtube

Out of game. In game, it plays fine, but when Diablo 3 is minimized, sites like Youtube or any site really that has a video freezes my browser. If I alt-tab back into Diablo 3, the video will continue to play (if it had already been started).

Actually, I think I've noticed that it's Adobe Flash that is the issue. But it only crashes when Diablo 3 is open and the above criteria is met. So there has to be something with Diablo 3 that is causing the issue.

HTML5 mode on Youtube doesn't help. Come on, anything?

Do you know of any other users able to replicate this? I can't.

verify you got flash from the official site and not through a 3rd party vendor like chrome or firefox, sometimes these can be bugged or bloated which can cause some issues.

hope it helps!

@Omrakos, I think this thread suggests a problem somewhere: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6934725238

@ Uberdork, yes, always. I've used Ninite recently.

Still an issue after months. I have been playing on Fullscreen to keep the issue from affecting me, but it is still a problem.
