Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

As example go to the following URL: http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2014/02/06/once-you-see-canadas-response-to-russian-anti-gay-laws-youll-never-look-at-luging-the-same-way-again/

It has a YouTube video on it, it will not play and where the play button would be in the middle of the video instead there is a message stating "An error occurred, please try again later. [Learn More]".

Looking at the page via dev tools it appears to be using the flash player when this happens so it could be something to do with the flash that is included with IE 11.

This is running on Win 8.1 Pro 64bit with 64bit IE.

Expected Results:

The video should play without issue.

Actual Results:
