    Many thanks to lovinglinux, first link seems to have fixed this for me:

    sudo mkdir /etc/adobe
    echo "OverrideGPUValidation=true" >~/mms.cfg
    sudo mv ~/mms.cfg /etc/adobe/

    you're a wonderful humanbeing and will recieve my undying gratitude

    I have done a fresh install again and didn't install any other software, to eliminate other variables. Could this be a driver issue with my graphics card?
    Get FLASH-AID, an extension to remove conflicting flash plugins and install the proper version according to your browser architecture.

    flash aid did the trick, but videos at high resolution are choppy, much so at 1080p in full-screen. Now i know that my Intel gpu sucks ***, but on windows and fedora my video playback are perfect. But at-least we got it. Thank you

    Then get FlashVideoReplacer. At least you will be able to watch HD videos on YouTube. I'm the developer of that extension too.

    That did the trick... Much clearer video quality. Thank you so much for all your help. Does this interfere with youtube god awful ads, other than not play them.

    I have the same problem since I installed 10.10. My hardware is a Dell Inspiron 640m laptop. I ran 10.04 since April, with no problems in flash, so this is definitely related to something in 10.10, rather than my machine. Another difference is I did not just upgrade, I did a fresh install. For me, the problem is intermittent. It freezes the video maybe 75% of the time when fullscreen is selected.
