Video freezes entire system, possibly flash bug?

Bug Description

In both VLC and Firefox Videos, my system often hangs up and requires a hard reboot. I'm thinking flash is somehow consuming the entirity of my RAM but I've noticed my problem is rare and the only relevant solutions are for full screen video problems. Mine occur with any screen size.

I seem to experience the same bug.

I've also manually compiled nvidia driver 270.41.06 , same result.
I've manually installed seamonkey-2.2 with plugin-container feature, same result.

I experience the bug after watching less than 10 video's from youtube (jplayer doesn't seem to be very problematic.)
