Freezing with Firefox

Post by gazoo » Sat Feb 13, 2010 6:25 pm

After about 5 minutes of watching a cam, the stream freezes and I have to delete the history of the ZM site on firefox to get it to come back..how do I fix this?

I've noticed something similar when viewing zm's camera feed, Apache2 seems to crash, or zombie. After watching a zm feed for some time, other websites on the machine fail to respond. In this case, "apachectl2 restart" lets it right back in, so I don't know that it is zm's fault, but maybe a bug with a late version of apache?

One other problem I've met is that Firefox *still* has reliability problems with mjpeg feeds, and on machines that use them a lot I have now switched to Chrome which will sit there all day handling multiple mjpeg streams without exploding like FF >2.0x does.

Well I used to restart apache, but it seems like it could be a client problem so clearing the cache seems to solve it on the browser side. Either way I don't like it..hasn't anybody addressed this yet?

Check you are using the latest version of firefox. An earlier version (about 18 months ago?) had a bug where it wouldn't close a stream once you had finished viewing it. This resulted in firefox freezing.

Though it's against my browser-religion, I find that using IE with the cambozola.jar gets around the lockups better than anything else.

The only downside to cambozola.jar for me is that you can't click to zoom and you can't change the Scale.

Also, jZMconsole might be a good option. I only ran it for an hour or two so far and it didn't suffer lockups.

Before I converted to IE/cambozola.jar, I was using K-melon browser with significantly less lockups.

Chrome, perhaps? Works dandy for me.
