How to Solve Shockwave Flash Crash Issues

Last Updated on March 23, 2021 | Written by Daniel Peters

What has been the best contribution of the internet to our daily lives? The ease of communication? The ability to research anything and everything? Those are certainly amazing and useful, but the best thing? Internet’s entertainment value. Ever since the advent of the internet, online videos have been a great way to pass the time and boredom. Whether it’s cat videos on Youtube or TV Shows and Movies on online streaming services like Netflix and Amazon, video streaming is an integral part of internet services. But, to stream videos, you need a multimedia platform that can play those videos. One such platform is Adobe Flash.

Adobe Flash was initially developed as SmartSketch by FutureWave Software, which then became FutureSplash. Macromedia then acquired the company in 1996 until Adobe Systems finally acquired Macromedia in 2005. It then became a multimedia software platform used to produce animations, mobile, and desktop applications, mobile games, Internet applications, and embedded web browser video players.  The software works on all major browsers, such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. However, the software can become problematic and cause errors as well. Perhaps, that is why it is becoming obsolete and will soon be deprecated.

If you’re still using Flash on any of your browsers, a Shockwave Flash Crash can cause major problems. To solve a Shockwave Flash Crash error, the best thing to do is disable it. So, you first need to open your browser. If you’re Google Chrome, open the browser and go to “Settings.” Then, expand the “Advance Setting” and scroll down to the “Content Settings” button. Next, scroll down again in the pop-up screen and check the box next to “Flash” to disable it. However, if you are using Mozilla Firefox, click the icon with the three bars at the top right corner and click “Add-ons.” Then, click “Plugins” on the left side of the page and scroll down to “Shockwave Flash.” Click the drop-down menu and hit the “Never Activate” option. That’s it; you have successfully disabled Flash and can now avoid all future Shockwave Flash Crash errors.
