can't invite others to hangout . . . keeps refreshing and multiple "me's" appear gigi+ 8/12/12 6:25 AM
I can successfully start a hangout but when I go to add from my circles the hangout refreshes and I have to re-join the hangout that I started that now has me (live video) and me (a static picture of me). When I try to add again the same thing happens--i have seen up to 5 "me's" in one hangout.  This also happens occasionally while I am in a hangout I have not started--the hangout will suddenly refresh itself and I have to join again and there is a "me" (a static picture of me) already in the hangout!  Eventually the static picture "me" goes away but it is frustrating being kicked off and not able to start my own hangout. PLEASE HELP!

Hi gig+

Are you starting these Hangouts from a +page or a +profile? Also, what OS and browser/version are you using? How long has this been going on? Have you tried any troubleshooting steps like clearing your browser's cache/cookies and reinstalling the plugin?

Thanks!
Dori

i am using OS X version 10.6.8 and safari 5.1.7. I thought uninstalling and reinstalling might work but didn't know how.  I will follow your link to try

your link shows an install but not an uninstall process.  How do I uninstall?

I've had similar problems, but only in hangouts with more than one other person. Also using Safari v5.1.8. I tried reinstalling the plug in with no change in behavior. I haven't tried clearing the cache or cookies though (because some of those are things I would like to keep around).

Has anyone figured this out yet? I sure hope so!

@Jonathan, what OS and browser are you using?

@C Sharon, are you running Safari 5.1.8 on Mac OS X 10.5?
