Silverlight Crashing

Silverlight Crashing

I'm having trouble trying to watch the Pac12 network because the Silverlight plugin keeps crashing. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Silverlight, but I have had no success. I am running Windows 7 with Silverlight 5.1.20913.0, and have had trouble with both Chrome v 30.0.1599.69 m and Internet Explorer 10.0.9200.16721. Silverlight works fine for me with Netflix.

Re: Silverlight Crashing

I know it sounds stupid but... resize your browser window to be smaller than the streaming window size and then try it. That works for me every time, then I'm able to select the full screen option and that works as well. But if at any time I maximize my browser window or resize it, or drag it to another monitor then Silverlight will crash. It’s clearly a bug from either Microsoft or Comcast and I know it sounds stupid but it appears to get around the issue. I've been using that as my workaround for over a year now.
