    Well I am running x86_64 so I need nspluginwrapper, but I don't have mozilla-vlc installed either. This problem is an issue for me - maybe once or twice a day it crashes firefox.

    ok.. for more stability,, maybe even in 64 bit.

    some of you may have noticed that now that nspluginwrapper is gone, ocasionally gecko(read firefox) itself crashes, im pretty sure this is due to a number of factors namely multiple and competing fragments and plugins battling each other for control.

    Go to about : plugins and see what you have on the go right now.. do you have vlc, totem, and mplayer plugins because that is getting rediculous. yum remove vlc-plugin, totem-plugin-basic, and everything but mplayerplug-in or whatever you want but you only need one of them. not sure about all the names here mozplugger is another one.

    Further, i read somewhere else on the forum that the flash plugin might be more stable if installed as a user not as root so
    yum remove flash* then go to adobe's site and d/l the tar.gz flash package and install it as a regular user.

    I was just listening to music in pulse compatible xmms and had like 3 youtube facebook videos playing at once while browsing and playing randome vids from youtube proper all while having a site with multiple "flash-vertisements" open in yet another tab... no problems at all(while... my lappy did get a little sluggish)

    good luck all

    I pulled out all the video related plugins (totem, vlc, xine, mplayer, real), and I still get
    nspluginwrapper crashes if I load a lot of different flash at the same time. Like, if I go
    to a really flash ad heavy site and bounce from one youtube video to another for a
    while.

    Without nspluginwrapper, firefox/gecko crashes, so I guess we've learned what the
    wrapper is for. :-)

    Victory, I think. :-)

    I got rid of the yum flash plugin (sudo yum remove flash-plugin.i386), downloaded
    the tar file version of flash and installed it as a non-root user. I can now have
    dozens of flash stuff running with no npviewer.bin crashes.

    I've also got the mplayer plugin, but not vlc, xine, totem, or real. I'm in 32 bit land.

    Thanks to Quik69 for the solution!

    no prob..... i think this solution should work even for the 64bit guys, although they will have to keep nspluginwrapper.

    Like i said remove everyting but one video handling plugin and install flash as a regular user.

    I'm using mplayerplug-in and all seems pretty good so far, if anyone else is using something different and getting good results let us know.

    Run one flash object at a time. Close all external media players before you load the flash object. Disable system sounds and sounds in chat programs like pidgin, or anything else that might try to make noise.

    Doing the above, do you have sound in flash?

    Gecko only crashes every now and then for me, after removing nspluginwrapper, which is more tolerable than flash crashing on me practically every time with nspluginwrapper.
    If you're not questioning my sanity, I'm not trying hard enough
