Flash is can be one funky video format at times mattering what the video creator did with it. You could be experiencing many things including your antivirus program monitoring the video in real time. I prefer converting to avi and then watching but I'm not sure what copy prevention net flix might use to stop doing this. I do find it a pain in the ass that Flash is so CPU intensive at times and even with a 2.1 ghz cpu it still sometimes causes my browser to be totally unresponsive as Brad was pointing out.

If possible see if you can view the video with a self contained player. I'm using GOM Player now which plays them very well, though they are already on my harddrive at the time I play them.
