    I went back to IE 11 because Chrome is just too slow. FireFox work great, but I will stick to IE 11.
    Same here. It's not IE, nor 10F site. In researching this I found javascript - Uncaught ReferenceError: ytcfg is not defined (also __ytRIL is not defined) - Stack Overflow that states it's a Google problem, not this site, for we see the video placeholders here. It's just not being filled in. I'll imbed a video below from Vimeo that will be seen.

    One work-around I'm doing for now is to right click the blank video placeholder, choose "View Source" on the menu, copy the URL at the bottom of the page as seen below, and paste it into another tab to view the video from the source site.

    Whatever the (external) cause was, something seems to have changed. YouTube videos now work again in IE for this site.

    Indeed they do, but slow to fill in for me. White placeholder at first, then turns black, then a few-second pause before it finalizes. How about yours?

    It happens every now and then on my Shield and on my laptop. I just flush everything, reboot and it works. A lot of it I think is when some videos from a certain server are removed, along with the local host server that Google is using ends up getting hit with too much traffic when there is a live feed.

    Only way to find out is to look at the stat's for nerds.

    Update: I didn't do anything special, but the YouTube videos now show normally as they always did. Have downloaded Firefox in the interim, and have been using that mostly instead of IE11 anyway. Thanks again for everyone's replies.
