[SOLVED] Chromium Shockwave Flash Crash After Update

[SOLVED] Chromium Shockwave Flash Crash After Update: "After running an upgrade Chromium browser Shockwave Flash Plugin crashed!

If you have the same problem I have a workaround.

firstly open Firefox goto a website that uses flash (not YouTube) I used BBC iPlayer, then right click and click on "settings..."
The left most tab shows the "Enable hardware acceleration" tickbox
Untick it
Then close and reopen Chromium and go back to a flash site e.g. YouTube and test it is working.

The reason this worked for me is that there is a bug in either Googles Chromium or the Unix/X11 build of Shockwave Flash or my graphics card drivers
