Hello John,
The error suggests you have installed chromium locally.  Perhaps something
did not quite go right with the install or you have a buggy version
installed in /opt/google/chrome

I prefer to use chromium from the personal package archive
Try install chromium from the ppa and remove the local copy (or take it out
of your command path).

I have been able to run sites such as the bbc iplayer without any problems
using the ppa repository.  I dont update every day though.

Hope this helps.
