The performance of the latest released flash plugin from Adobe (9.0.115)  to watch videos such as  is not smooth enough to understand what is said.
But using an older release of the flash plugin such as 9.0.21 from  gives a much better playback (good enough in my opinion).
The interesting thing is that when the movie is playing with 115, X is consuming 30% of the cpu. With 21, 2-5% cpu is used by X during playback.
My guess is that for some reason 115 is not using Xv or other feature of the X server so that needs to do more work.
