Win 7 64, ie 9. ff 22.0 also at 11.8.800.94. Video cards are Nvidea 6200 DVI and 8400GS. All software & drivers are current. This is a Gigabyte MB, 4GB.
IE will play some youtube videos like this one.http://www.youtube.com/user/UFCselect?v=DkYDh4WFnCg
But it won't play https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSQXZhGEHYs
Sometimes the leadin commercial plays, but the video doesn't.
The second video starts but stops immediately. Eventually it times out. There is a leadin commercial &
maybe the problem is related to that. This one acts the same way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhmoaVu3ZN0
All those videos play fine on FF.
This NBC video plays on both IE & FF.
all HULU videos I tested worked on both. http://www.hulu.com/#!watch/511186 as a sample.
Hardware optimization doesn't change the symptoms, data and storage have both been deleted.
I tried using both video cards & that didn't make a difference.
