Why are Flash applications so sluggish in Ubuntu?

I have just installed Ubuntu for a friend. He uses 32 bit. When he views YouTube videos full-screen there is a kind of lag. He is using an ATI 1 GB graphics card. This doesn't happen when he is not in full screen mode. Is there any workaround to prevent this?

A better video card might help.

I don't think the Video card is at play - I've had smooth flash on crappier cards than that. – Marco Ceppi Aug 13 '10 at 20:36
OK. It's something usually reported with Intel graphics. – maco Aug 13 '10 at 20:55
A graphics card did help. – User Oct 19 '10 at 5:50
