In Ubuntu 12.10 gecko-mediaplayer doesn't load in chrome. In Ubuntu 12.04 gecko-media player loads but crashes immediately (in Chrome) This happens with both video and audio links.

The crash in Ubuntu 12.04 seems to happen only with Nvidia cards (with both nouveau and the proprietary drivers). Tested on a few computers with Nvidia graphic cards and gecko-media player failed in all cases, but it works fine with a few other machines with AMD cards.

The problem happens only in Chrome, in Firefox everything works.

Any insight or hint to where the problem might be will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
