first i would update your flashplayer,
also double check and make sure the site you are viewing from isn't just streaming slow (wait for it to fully load and then watch)
then if it continues control alt del and click on the processes tab, sort by CPU, and see what is hanging the processor.
look to see if there is some other program that is using a lot of processing power. sometimes older cpu's can't handle flash video and other stuff running.

one other note: although its not common, some OEM's will limit laptop processor power when running on battery, but this is mostly for vista or if you have a third party program for XP.

hope this helps
