[SOLVED] Chromiun addon crashes on certain sites (including Amazon)

  • Hello,

    i`ve installed a fresh image of LE master from yesterday and then installed the latest chromium addon from Kodinerds repository (Chromium v55.0.2883.75).

    On certain sites (including Amazon.de/Amazon.com) I get an error from chrome itself: "Aw, Snap! Something went wrong while displaying this page".

    I do not get more information about the exact error, only a link to google for solving it (clear cache and so on - but does not help).

    Sites like LibreElec.tv and Google work normally.

    Settings are at default. Only rendering is changed to AMD and "default" due to an AMD APU.

    It`s a complete fresh install.

    Is this a known bug? Can anyone reproduce this ?

    Thank you !

  • Yes it is a known bug. Chromium version in Libreelec 7.0.104 is broken, I would like to roll back to version 7.0.103 which worked fine but so far I have not had a reply if this is possible or how to do it.

  • Hi marv,

    yep that works :):D thank you !
    The only thing is: I cannot get hardware accleration to work. I have an AMD 5350 APU. Changed settings to hardware accleration "AMD" and "force" or "default" in chrome addon config, but chrome stays in software accleration mode. Therefore I have no smooth playback and also no HD signal for Amazon Prime.

    Do I have any chanches to get hardware accleration work with this APU and LE ?

    Thank you !

  • Yesterday I managed to find an old openelec v 6.0.7 based on Chromium 48.0.2564.82. I enabled VDPAU in the options, copied in the chrome DRM .so file and it works fine. Video play back of Netflix is smooth and no tearing.

    p.s. If you are installing a Chromium add-on from the Kodinerds repo, please ask Kodinerds for support.

    No more Aw snap error but flash did not work so installed the following -
    "@ LaLadaI had the same problem. I solved it this way:
    1) Download https://fpdownload.adobe.com/pub/flashpl..._64.tar.gz
    2) Unzip the file libpepflashplayer.so
    3) The Copy libpepflashplayer.so to /storage/.kodi/addons/browser.chromium/bin/PepperFlash/ "

    Chromium and flash work, and no aw snap error.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  • Groundhog Day..... :D - the "AW Snap issue" is back (with Amazon Prime and LibreELEC repo Chromium Addon).
    Is there a chance to see a more recent version of chromium @Irusak ?

    Many thanks in advance
