Tell me that's a typo... 15000!!! If that was 700 MB / video you'd need 10 
Terabytes!!! Or are they all real small clips?

I can't answer you question directly, but at the risk of teaching the 
proverbial grandma to suck eggs, a couple of things to try. Use:
vmstat 1 10000
while you open the video part. Is the cpu high for system, user, or waiting? 
Are lots of processes waiting to run or blocked? Is it swapping like crazy, 
or is the disk IO through the roof?

Also try something like iptraf. Is the network maxing out? This should give 
you some indication as to where the problem lies.
