Is YouTube laggy for you?

Well, I've realized for some time now that every time I play a 1080p fullscreen video on YouTube (not on any other video site like Vimeo though) that it is extremely "laggy" and the frame rate is stupid low. If I exit fullscreen and switch to the small or large player though, it's fine. I even upgraded the RAM on my late 2009 iMac 2.66 i5 from 4 to 12GB mostly because it was getting maxed out as it was and there was a sale at OWC. Even though my heavy apps like AutoCAD, MATLAB, and Mathematica run smoother now, YouTube is still lagging in fullscreen. I know it's not my computer or internet because if I play a fullscreen HD video on any other site or in iTunes, the iMac plays them fine and smooth. So I feel like this is a problem that lies within YouTube. Is anyone else experiencing this? If so, are there any solutions or are we stuck with choppy videos? Thanks for the input in advance! Oh, and I've tried using YouTube in both the HTML5 and Flash versions...
