I have noticed that since updating to IE11 that You Tube freezes the second it loads.  Windows reports that 'the webpage has stopped responding' and to reload. Again the second the page loads it freezes.  Anyone else noticed this and any resolution?  Or is this another example of MS and Google not playing nice?

Google search indicates I am not alone but as yet no solution.

Personally I am a Chrome user so no issues, but wifey insists on using IE.  This is on a Win 7 i7 lappy.

Seems to be working fine here, Win7 running ie11, running on an AMD Phenom 955 though that 'shouldn't' make a difference

Works fine for me as well - have you checked to see if any plugins might be the cause of the issue?

Hmmm. Had absolutely no issues prior to the IE11 update. Lappy is fairly well spec'd so shouldn't be any performance anxiety issues there. Uninstalled the flash player looking at other suggestions, and presto all better. Other than can't play flash content.

Will have another go at converting the missus to another browser...

YouTube will play most videos using html5, so no flash required

I think you can optin to this at www.youtube.com/html5

Another +1. Since the past 3 days out of nowhere, all my Windows 8.1 machines with IE11 freezes when I go to youtube and only unfreezes after good 30 odd seconds.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Well, I posted a comment re PS4 issues, as in there always seems to be issues on new releases these days. Phones, phone OS, CHROMEBOOK, now IE. IMHO appears to be out one soon as and lack of quality control. YouTube/Flash isn't exactly a minor app

I didn't wait that long (impatient) but re-installed Adobe Flash and tried it.  After 2 mins still frozen. If I try and select anything the window pops up along the bottom advising that the website is not responding.  Have not come across any other issues with flash content on other websites.

I have done the above youtube.com/html5 and seems to be normal now.
