I have had this problem of videos crashing my browser for weeks. It started in IE9, so I got Firefox, then that crashed too, so I got Chrome, and that crashed too. I also noticed that if I downloaded Flash videos, and played them locally, they crashed the viewer too. The Adobe forums lead me to believe that maybe I needed to update my video driver, so I did that; but videos still crashed whatever ran them. I noticed that sometimes my sound would stop working before the video crashed, and sometimes I heard loud clicks while the video played, and I couldn’t launch the soundcard interface; so I wondered if the sound card was the problem. Today I re-installed my sound card driver, and the problem went away! These problems are not all straightforward, Windows machines can be difficult to trouble shoot, and not a every problem has an readily apparent cause.
