    Hi there

    I have a macbook pro 13 which is about 2 years old.

    I have noticed recently when watching something on line the fans have been going a lot louder.

    Is there anything I can do to rectify the loud fans? I am guessing it is because it is flash?

    Thanks for any help! :)

    If you are watching videos, then yes it would be the flash.
    I use clicktoflash to avoid unnecessary flash on my browser.

    It's most likely Flash.

    As far as lowering fan speed goes, I wouldn't try it as you can make your computer run hotter, potentially damaging it.
