When I try to play video on youtube, or other websites, my laptop freezes only in full screen and stutters all the time. The only way I can exit is alt+tab. Escape and mouse doesn't work.

Is there anyone, who is familiar with this problem?

Perhaps Asus x51r is not powerful enough to run falsh video fullscreen? Can you add the hardware specs to the question. –  mikewhatever Dec 23 '12 at 12:42
Yup. I can run HD movies on player (even Full HD on external port) but flash doesn't work very fast. Do you have the same issue on Windows? –  Melon Dec 23 '12 at 13:00
Update your system. –  nickanor Dec 23 '12 at 13:55
On windows haven't this problem. This is only on Ubuntu, Ubuntu Studio and Xubuntu (for other version I don't know). –  user115035 Dec 24 '12 at 14:11
Does it improve after rebooting, or doe sit always stutter? You should also share your browser version and Flash plugin version. –  Mark Stosberg Jan 13 '13 at 2:34
