If your Mac gets hot, that is why the fan is running. It is indicative of a problem with heat.

Give us more info on the macbook.

YouTube videos and flash content taxes (puts a heavy load on) the CPU of the machine. The fan ramps up RPM to cool it down. If it didn't do that, the machine would shut down otherwise the CPU could be destroyed.

It's the increase in the RPM that makes the loud noise. It's normal. Just make sure your machine is on a flat surface to allow cooling under and around it.
