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
