This has been covered recently.  With lower spec machines....  Flash 9 runs horribly.  Nothing we can do.  Adobe built us a piece of junk.  Mplayer with it's own codes, works much better as you have discovered.

My old box (God rest it's good soul) was a 1 gz with 500 mb ram.  I couldn't comfortably run flash 9 either.  Yet using Windows on the same machine, Flash 9 worked great.  I guess they didn't put enough love into our version.

may be you are right

but, i guess that this is due to direct x?

I wouldn't be surprised.  Don't know the innards of the player of course.  But it makes sense.  I know Win video capture is less cpu/memory intensive then Linux because it's using direct x.
