@bolognarock: Does it sometimes do it on longer YouTube videos on HD as well? I had the same problem you're describing with YT videos so maybe this'll help. Chrome uses a built in flash player that's different than the one you download and use for Firefox, Safari, etc. Essentially Chrome has 2 different versions of flash running at the same time (one is just not using many resources). It's pretty dumb and I'm not sure why do that.
So, you'll have to disable the built in version of flash and use the system wide version. Put chrome://plugins in your address bar. Click the Details plus sign in the upper right. Scroll down to flash. There should be two versions:
~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/Flash Player.plugin
Disable the upper one (the pepperflash/chrome one).
That should work, it did for me. If you only have one version of flash, well then I have no idea. Hope this helps.
