    Can you provide a little more information such as the specific model of iMac and the version of OS X you're running. Maybe this will help somebody provide better help. Have you looked on Viber's support page? There's an FAQ section and I believe they offer good support using Twitter so if you don't find an answer on here then I'm sure you can send Viber the information in the "Show Details" section of the problem report. Good luck. :)

    Does the same on my computer. As soon as I send a message, Viber crashes and gives me the message that is has quit unexpectedly.

    I'm using a MPB 2013, Maverick and the latest version of Viber.

    Same problem

    I have a Mac book pro retina late 2012. I have been using viber for over a year now. Was using it on maverick for a long time. It works just fine. Then one day after a normal restart, I started experiencing this crashing problem. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, nothing changed. I upgraded to Yosemite same thing. I recently did a clean upgrade to Yosemite, again same issue. Apparently, I notice that my modem app - Airtel Internet is also behaving the same way. Really frustrating as I heavily rely on these two apps.
    Someone please help.

    Found it

    After 1 year of not using this damn app; I finally managed to get it to work for longer than 20 seconds.

    1. Update to Version 5.0
    2. Go to Preferences > Notifications > "Play Sounds For" > Calls Only

    That fixed it for me.
    Good luck to everyone.

    I can't even start the app, it shoes in the dock and straight away disappears. Reinstall doesn't work. And I think it's related to the audio driver, I've switched from AppleHDA to VoodooHDA to be able to run audio via HDMI and after that Viber became mad :)
