      at least a 5MBit connection minimum and a Core2Duo with at least 4GB of RAM and a Nvidia graphics card with at least 1GB onboard RAM.  What do you expect, 720p h.264 flash video (which still uses pure software rendering) is very hard to decode.  Oh, sure you can use browser hacks like flv downloader so you can play the video with something like CoreAVC but then you have to wait for the flash video downloader addons to support whatever site you are using.
