BSOD in opera while watching YouTube's flash videos

  • Hello,

    I have noticed this strange problem. When I'm playing youtube videos in my Opera, sometimes I get blue screen of death on my Windows 7 64 bit. The crash never happens during the video, only when I'm trying to open a new one or when the playlist is opening the next video.

    For the past couple of days I have tried to watch videos in Chrome and everything went fine. The difference is that videos in Chrome are played using HTML5 whereas in Opera they're played using flash and so I'm suspecting that it is either flash, Opera or both that are causing the problem.

    Have anybody experienced this problem? If yes, did you find any solution?

    My Opera (24.0.1558.53) and flash are both up to date and the BSOD never happened outside of this specific situation on the laptop.

    Thanks for any answer!
