    I've been fighting this one for a few weeks, and need some help.

    I have a Macbook Pro Mid 2009 w 3.06 Ghz Core2Duo. Back in June, I upgraded the RAM to 8GB, installed a 256GB SSD in the DVD drive bay with a fresh copy of Mavericks, while leaving the original 512GB HD in the original slot, running DP Yosemite. Ran fine.

    Then, watching a Youtube video in Mavericks, the system would freeze, and tell me there was a Kernel Panic. And, typically after 2-40 minutes, stutter, I could repeat it. Tried a different browser, didn't matter. Alright, let's use the integrated card, instead of the dedicated graphics... no matter. Kernel Panic.
    Close down all non OS programs (Aside from normal updates, I haven't installed any new software...) Boom... KP.

    Netflix... Crash after 2-40 min of video, stutter, KP.

    Go to \Library\Internet Plug-Ins\ and remove reference to anything but Java, Quartz and Quicktime. Remove all start on login programs. Remove any browser extensions. Again, same problem once the video codecs are installed and I watch video thru a browser after a bit. Sometimes after reboot, and 2 minutes playback, sometimes after an hour. It ONLY affects internet video playback. Everything else seems solid.

    So, reboot in to Yosemite, and it is the same crash game again. Firefox, Chrome, Safari, doesn't matter.

    Apple Hardware Test - Extensive - no issues found. Memtest - no issues found

    This seems to be all I see, which doesn't tell me much, other than a memory page fault... I think:

    I get this nagging feeling that a clean OS install isn't going to fix a thing, even though this appears to only be affected by browser video playback.

    Suggestions welcome.

    And this only happens in video? Never when not watching a video?
    I used to have a random crashing problem just like yours; 8GB ram in Mid-2009 MBP. Turns out the 8GB RAM that was installed by the previous owner was defective.

    Because it ONLY happens while watching video, I doubt it is ram, but it still may be. Use Apple hardware Test (extended tests) and/or Memtest86.

    Download any GPU benchmark program (Unigine Valley is a good choice) and run it for a while. Other then that, an extended memtest is in order. I think there are high chances that your RAM or VRAM are corrupt.

    Which SSD do you have??

    There's nothing in the panic log to indicate that it's a graphics related issue even though it happens during video playback. Do you have any other applications on your computer that can load the CPU?
    Do you have other RAM you can put in to test with? Even though memtest didn't find anything I wouldn't rule out memory errors.

    Pt 2.

    Well, I wiped the OWC SSD and installed a clean Yosemite OS.

    Fired up Safari, downloaded Silverlight, got 3 minutes in to a show, and I got the panic again.

    So, I'd assume that eliminates software as the issue. Trying to swap out the 8GB of RAM for the original 4GB this weekend, and see if that brings back some stability.

    Replaced the RAM back to the original 4GB.

    Machine seems a bit faster, and, no more crashing.

    I'm still not sure why all of my memory tests seemed to be fine, but definitely the RAM was the issue. Might be RAM build quality, I'm not sure... it was a gift, and before installing, had never heard of DMS (datamemorysystems.com)
