the decoding of encrypted data stream uses some processor time and if your motherboard can't put the video processing 'off board' to a video/multimedia board then the processor must handle that function at the same time. 'it is what it is' for your system. on mine i get a 2-3% bump streaming but I have a multimedia board that handles the video.

any major should work with flash enabled. chrome has embedded sand-boxed flash built in and they keep flash up to date on their browser.
