Fans going mad during video playback!

    Quick one for you today. My air has randomly started going mad with it's use of fans while it's playing back video. Mostly web streamed video such as tv shows etc. Never really during youtube vids, more so longer videos.

    I do hours of work daily (college student) so excel, office, Stata, photoshop, spotify etc all open and running simultaneously and no issues, it's only when I "take a break' and watch a tv show that everything goes mad...

    Any ideas? I hate the embarassing states.. nothing takes away from the slickness of my air more than the roars of a fan...
