Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Ubuntu 12.04 crashes when I use YouTube. The screen goes black with a lot of numbers, for example [780.768026] or [420.620022]. The numbers are always different. Can anyone help me? I have tried reinstalling, and that hasn't helped.

What computer are you running it on (Model number or specs)? Does this happen if you enable HTML5 (from youtube.com/html5)? Does this happen in Windows? Do any other video playback or web gaming sites cause the same effect? –  Andrew Aug 22 '12 at 5:20
You should also mention what browser you are using and how you installed flash –  damien Aug 22 '12 at 5:35
It seems a kernel panic is being triggered. Are there messages next to the numbers, that might yield information about what is going on? –  Eliah Kagan Aug 22 '12 at 7:30
