Comment 15 for bug 225165

It happens in other browsers such as Epiphany as well in Gnome Shell with the Adobe Flash Plugin.
But also in firefox with moonlight 4 or gnash for example. While in Minitube for example cpu usage remains quite a bit lower.

So, based on some info found, there might possible be a different problem going on additionally, namely on (some system setups) some kind of extensive CPU use when viewing any kind of video in a web browser. What could be the cause of this?

A (short term) solution, might be to use something like cpu-limited and a cache to limit cpu usage and write ahead the video in the cache. Although even better would be to find out the cause of the problem. From what I found this may possibly be somewhat related to what kind of processor and/ or graphics card is used. If this a wider problem than say Ubuntu, Linux kernel problem, Firefox, or Flash, I second getting in touch with each other to work on this.

Platform problem experienced:
Ubuntu: 11.10 64bit using gnome-shell
Pc: HP Mini 110-3700
Processor: Intel Atom Processor N455 (64 bit)
Graphics card: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150
