I've noticed that when I load many flash videos, when flash uses too much memory to store the videos, the flash player crashes on all tabs:

The following plug-in has crashed : Shockwave Flash

Can I increase the amount of memory flash can use ?

Right Click on the video, change the settings, but there is going to be a limit to how much memory flash will be able to use depending on your system. –  Ramhound Nov 7 '11 at 13:43
If I right click video > folder icon, it says: how much information youtube.com can store on your computer ? I think this is local storage, and it's not used for storing video. If I go right click video > global settings > local storage settings by site, i have a list with with storages not exeeding the kilobyte. So I don't think it is used to store the video neither. Tell me if i'm wrong. –  pinouchon Nov 7 '11 at 13:52
