System slowdown playing embedded video

I have installed Ubuntu 6.06.1, and have been working on setting things
up before switching everything over from 5.10. I have an AMD Athlon and
an ATI Radeon 9000. I am running the kernel 2.6.15-25-k7 along with the
matching restricted modules package. I have installed the fglrx driver,
and after replacing libGL.so.1.2 with a new one from here:
Flash 7 is installed and working. If I try to play:
it plays fine. But cpu usage is very high, and when the clip ends the
cpu goes to 100% and the machine won't respond to anything for 15-20
seconds. After that I can close the tab, and everything is back to normal.
This plays perfect: http://www.seminaryguy.com/funny_cats_1.wmv.
But I can't replay it without reloading the page.
Does anyone else have trouble with these? I don't think it is an ati
issue, but maybe I messed up something as I was fiddling with 3d accel.
The second link is playing with the totem-gstreamer plugin (firefox).
Maybe I should try totem-xine?
I can't find anything in logs at the time this happens, so I am kind of
in the dark on this. Any suggestions?
