2011 Mac Mini/Thunderbolt Display/Click To Flash

I have a base model 2011 Mac Mini with 8 GB of Crucial Ram and a Thunderbolt Display. If I install Click To Flash and try to watch a YouTube video at full screen the video stutters so badly I can't watch it. I have noticed that the default settings in Click To Flash is to play the video using the HTML 5 video at 1080p. I have adjusted these settings, but it still stutters. I can play video at full screen with Click To Flash turned off or the flash version at 720p or 1080p with no stutter. I am getting 6 Mbps down load speed on my internet and my monitor is connected to my Mini with the Thunderbolt cable from the ACD. The only way I have been able to get rid of the stutter is to play flash video's. I prefer the HTML 5 version because it takes out all of the adds and other stuff, but I can't watch it. Any help would be appreciated.

I don't have stuttering videos on youtube. But the audio is out of sync... (it's out of sync on most videos on other sites too). I'm guessing its videos that use flash.

I have flash player updated to the latest version. Is there anything I can do to fix the audio? :confused:

I'll have to install it again, I like it with SL. On I see the two versions to download (1.5.5 & 1.6b9) and they both say OSX 10.4 - 10.6

If you followed GGJstudios link you would have realized that he was talking about a different, newer click to flash which is Lion compatible.
