Looks like some setups crash with youtube because google enabled some new features, to fix this problem disable the following:
chrome://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features

This flag is disabled by default on Google Chrome. Don't know why you don't do the same for Advanced Chrome.

Google Chrome will enable the flag soon, seems that they enabled the flag pretty much at the same time I downloaded their sources and the Google Chrome you are talking about might be based on older sources even if the version number is higher, this is because they create separate branches not available to the public.

Advanced Chrome is almost like stock version so whatever they enable or destroy, it will affect us.

Now people seem to like Edge much more, so it will be interesting what google will do when their work on Chromium will only benefit Edge.

Also there are other new flags that create other problems, you can't track them all and can only be detected after the error is found, too late to disable it.
