  1. The cooling system is probably just clogged with dust. You could try getting some compressed air and cleaning it out.
  2. You can't really install anything. You could add a cooling pad, but it should not shut down AT ALL watching videos. You can blow put the vents with compressed air but the BEST solution is to disassemble it, clean it all out, change the thermal paste, and make sure the fans work. Laptops are "fiddley" though... So you have to be very careful. A computer shop could also do it
