YouTube.

Post by bally1001 » Wed Apr 04, 2018 6:00 am

When watching any YouTube video that lasts for more than 15 minutes or so, my Mint 18:1 Cinnamon OS crashes.....That is to say, I either get the white screen of death or the Black s.o.d....Is this an inherent issue or can I get around the problem?.....If I download any lengthy YT video (using the 4K download app) all is OK.

Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output in your next message.

OK, try this:

1. Kernel upgrade:

a. Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels

b. Install the latest kernel of the 4.4 series (currently: 4.4.0-119).

c. Reboot.

2. Disable all visual effects:
