I can watch videos on YouTube all day long, as well as many other sites, but occasionally, I will only see a blank area where the video should be.  This has happened since at least IE9, and I had hoped IE10 was going to fix it.  I have tried all the fixes I have found on the web, but none of them have worked.  These videos always seem to work just fine in Chrome.

A perfect example is the IE11 MDSN site I just pulled up ( I see a blank area where the video should be, and the link works perfectly in Chrome. 

When in Chrome, I copy the URL for the video on Youtube, and it dispalys fine: 

Does this have to do with how the video is embedded? Is this "broken" or a settings issue? I think this is all about Adobe Flash, but uninstalling and reinstalling Flash does not help either.
