BBC iPlayer and disk usage


Here in the UK the BBC have made available the iPlayer for Linux users as a streaming solution using flash. While using it though I've noticed that my system starts to generate a lot more heat and sound, and I think this is mostly coming from my harddrive rather than the processor.

Any suggestions on how I can investigate this further?

Best wishes,

I haven't noticed it while watching DVDs no...

And yes, it's a super awesome site! Shame it uses a proprietary format though, and is a shame that on linux we can't download shows, but hopefully in time that will all improve

My laptop burns more cpu and gets hotter when watching flash videos on the web - not tried with iplayer specifically. Will give it a whirl and report back.
