I hear ya'. Let me see if I can keep digging.

What version of the script do you have by any chance?

The latest you posted I believe, version 3.20...

Issues like this usually have a simple explanation. Unfortunately it can be a brute to find that explanation. You'd think if I uninstalled Chrome and then cleaned up everything, reinstalling it would resolve whatever is causing this behavior. Is there some artifact that might be left over after an uninstall that I need to clean up manually?

Hmm...my version is 3.00. I wonder if something changed? After you run the uninstall option, do you reboot the box right after? I wonder if some lingering libraries remain. If you don't want to reboot, you can probably get away with just running ldconfig.

I *think* I did the uninstall/reboot test the last time I did it, but I may try it again just to be sure...

He's posted a few updates to the script for various things. I've tried each one, hoping I might get lucky, although none of the bug fixes ever seemed relevant to my particular issue, and sadly, they in fact did not fix my problem...

4.10 is out now - fixes Google Talk (Hangouts) plugin crash

Just a note I've put version 4.10 of the install_chrome.sh script up now. This includes a fix for Google Talk (Hangouts) plugin crashes (I don't use Hangouts myself, but a couple of users reported the issue to me).

The script hasn't fixed the SELinux enforcing mode issue with nacl_helper yet (though I'm slowly getting closer to that).
It does tell you to switch to permissive mode (and reboot) if it spots you're in SELinux enforcing mode.

On my 64-bit CentOS 6.4 system, Google Chrome 28 plays Flash video (and its audio) fine on the BBC News site for example.

I just tried the 4.10 script but I still just get audio for flash videos, no pictures. This used to work for Chrome version 26. I've tried to find this version to try to downgrade but can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know where I can get this version?

No video, but audio...

I can't reproduce your no-video problem in Chrome 28 and I'm assuming you're talking about Flash video not appearing whilst the audio part plays OK. I've seen this on video players such as mplayer - a couple of reasons could be either a lack of video hardware acceleration or the video part is using an unsupported codec.

It would be useful if you could give a URL (or even two or three) that's an example of this issue so I can try it out and see if there's issues on my system. I now test on VirtualBox VMs (32-bit CentOS 6.4 and 32-bit Scientific Linux 6.4) with no 2D or 3D acceleration, so should be able to reproduce the issue if that's the cause.

BTW, folks might like to know that Chrome 29 will fix the annoying dbus error messages on startup - that's a Chrome 28 bug that also occurs on Fedora 19 and Ubuntu 12.04.

Yes, I mean flash video. It used to work under Chrome 26 and when I upgraded to Chrome 28, flash videos only produce sound--no pictures. I tried to find version 26 but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere.

I know this issue doesn't have anything to do with lack of video hardware or anything like that, simply because it used to work fine. I have a Dell XPS system with lots of RAM and other goodies. CentOS 6.4 runs great on it, and so did Chrome up until version 28.

Here are some links that don't play:

Note: These videos all play fine in FireFox on this same system.
