'Target closed' error message

This error message comes up when a Chromium Tab crashes. Read on for possible reasons for this message.

Missing dependencies (Linux users)

Make sure that you installed the necessary dependencies in Linux for running Chrome.

Out of memory or CPU overload

A Chrome tab can crash if the process runs out of memory, or if the website stops responding because it uses the CPU too heavily.

Corrupt Google Chrome binary

Locate the binary that you are using to render the video. Run a test whether you can open Google Chrome / Chromium normally on this machine. Potentially reinstall the browser to fix the problem.


Add --log=verbose during a render to print the browser executable that is being used (from Remotion v2.6.7 on).
