Flash video sucks!

Summer is almost here. With the rising ambient temperature, my macbook gets hot sooner. Especially when my browser is open it gets hotter sooner. The reason is the all pervading Adobe Flash player based ads or video players on web pages. This has made the experience of watching videos on youtube or an unpleasant experience. If I watch the video in full-screen, I notice both cores on this macbook doing full 100%. That's horribly wrong when it only needs less than 1% when I play the same video via a standalone video player like VLC. This really needs to be fixed. Something is horribly broken here. Is this just me or everyone else simply putting up with this problem?
