I think that is connected to the encoding and the amount of Key-frames necessary. I don't know if you know how video encoding works, but to save memory you usually keep a few Key-frames, and then only compute the differences between them with some difference-frames, until you need to create a new Key-frame due to a big difference in the image, or reaching a set maximum of difference-frames. So, More movement = more key-frames = requires more computing power to show.
