    Let's find some exact details first. Which web browser are you using? What's your graphics? Do you have any additional drivers installed?

    I can suggest you try another web browser to see if the problem persists. If your entire session freezes up, this could be a bug with the graphics.

    Alternately, you may want to try turning on HTML5 in YouTube to identify if this is a Adobe Flash issue, you can do this via http://www.youtube.com/html5 (assuming the web browser is HTML5-compatible) A web browser like Google Chrome (not Chromium) bundle their own flash player, so for all other browsers like Firefox, you will need to double check the flash plug-in is properly installed.

    Linux Flash is a CPU hog. Check temps and make sure you're not overheating..
