I've tried using Ubuntu and Linux Mint, and in both, Flash videos like YouTube play in fast motion. It's as if someone is fast forwarding the video, but you can't do that on a YouTube video. Anyone know how to fix this? It does this in both Chrome and Firefox.

This is a very common issue with Flash in Linux.
Your best bet will be to remove it and re-install it.
Also, when using chrome make sure to use the system's version of flash (hopefully working after this) instead of chrome's built in flash. It usually fixes other problems you may run into later.
Will usually look similar to this.

It could be that you have Hardware decoding turned on which causes some problems as it is not "officially" supported yet by adobe. This option also causes some incompatibility issues with some video cards and flash video players. Known issues are videos playing and irregular speeds, video colors being messed up and frequent crashes of the adobe flash plugin.
To disable Hardware decoding, open a terminal and throw these commands in:
sudo mkdir /etc/adobe echo -e "EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=0" | sudo tee /etc/adobe/mms.cfg > /dev/null
