[PLUG] Multimedia blues

Have you any idea why even under Ubuntu Mate 16.04, FLV-compatible video playing under Chrome or Firefox can occasionally cause the whole OS to freeze, with the last part of a second of audio repeating, forcing the user to do a hard reboot ?

It's one of those one-in-a-million things, and my wild guess is that the symptom resembles an out-of-RAM condition so bad (there's 4GB in the lappy at issue) that it can't even thrash.
