    My MBP fan goes crazy when I view recorded upstream videos. Does anyone know why this could be happening?

    Is Ustream flash based, by any chance?

    Your fans probably aren't going crazy, they're simply spinning up to exhaust more heat caused by processing your streaming videos.

    Do you have the latest version of flash installed? It might be a good idea to do so, it may help reduce those temperatures.

    I believe USTREAM is flash based - As soon as videos begin to play on that site the fan is very audible and the picture and sound is delayed. I have no problem playing videos from other video streaming sites just this one. My flash is up to date. Only had this MBP since friday
