Chrome Crashing

#1

I love using WebODM (WebODM is cool!). The help here on the forum is great. The last time I used it, 2 months ago everything was working fine. I input some images yesterday and as soon as I clicked Start Processing, Chrome crashes. I tried restarting, updating and Chrome continues to crash. Here’s the funny thing, when I use Firefox as the GUI it runs fine.

I’m running Linux Mint 19 on an Alienware A-17-R5 and the Chrome version is Version 72.0.3626.96 (Official Build) (64-bit).

Any ideas on why it runs on Firefox but not Chrome?

That’s strange, I use Chrome on Linux (Arch) and UI has been running OK.

Would be interesting to hear if this affects other users.

I’m possibly having the same problem. Just purchased WebODM yesterday and was able to run one smaller (120 images) project through after having a larger double grid (420 images) project crash Chrome. Once I understood that the software would work, I gave the larger project another go and Chrome again crashed immediately. I was able to run both projects through using the ODM Docker command line so it’s doesn’t appear to be a Docker/ODM issue. I’m still experimenting thinking that the problem might have something to do with the number of images. Both projects are using 4 mega-pixel images.

Just in case it’s a configuration problem, I’m using an iMac (32GB, macOS 10.14 (18A391)), Google Chrome 73.0.3683.75, Docker Desktop 2.0.0.2 (30215), WebODM Manager 1.2 (updated this morning).

Does Safari work?

Firefox appears to work. Safari seems to have some Javascript issues (but no troubleshooting tools), since the “Select Images and GCPs” doesn’t seem to work.

I also faced this issue with WebODM and Chrome on ubuntu 16.04

For around 200 images, it seems to work fine. But beyond it, Chrome immediately crashed.
However, same set of images worked fine in Firefox.

Thanks for the input. Glad to see I am not the only one this is happening to. I use a large data set. Between 400 and 1,000 images. I did not try it with a smaller set.

Same here, but Firefox doesn’t seem to play well with dragging and dropping the set. Sometimes it works, sometimes it freezes up the web interface and I have to restart the browser and use file upload dialog.

Arch Linux, KDE Plasma
