Re: [K12OSN] Google Chrome on TC's



Hello Burke,

Thank you for the suggestion to block flash on a per seat basis.
I will give this a try.

This happens on any one client using Google Chrome in that anything in
flash with sound the video runs fine but the sound cuts in/out
repeatedly. Youtube is an example of this behavior.
I am going to try and set up Chrome to run as a local app and see if the
problem is lessened or worsened.
Also worth mentioning is in a matter of time Chrome will eventually stop
'drawing'. In other words it does not hard lock, but the browser itself
shows some content correctly but most of the page  is all gray for
example.
As a side note I have tested the system memory with memtest86 and looks
OK.

This server I built is pretty marginal CPU for home use and is an AMD
processor and from doing some Googling there seems to be somewhat of an
pattern with flash being problematic with AMD processor driven machines?
It is a lowly E350 Zotac Fusion APU with 8gb ram. I built this with the
intent of doing a 'power saving/go green' approach and then using three
TCs of 1gig cpu 1 gig ram 1 gig lan at each of the three seats and
running all local apps on each of the TCs.
I am guessing this APU simply does not have enough umph to produce
reliable video/audio. Looking back i experience this same thing on many
of the laptops at school were there sound 'struggles' on pretty much the
same mainboard architercture.

For some reason running Firefox as an local app on the TC's is crashing
frequently when opening just a couple flash sites to
thrash Firefox even a little.

>From what I have been able to read up on,Chrome has a native flash
built in but you can override this by disabling it and enabling the
system flash-plugin (which does show up in the Chrome plug-ins).

Sorry for long post. Trying to supply too many details!

Thanks,
Barry
