Not sure where this bug is coming from, I'm guessing it's limited to IE11, since I don't have this issue when using Chrome. Out of 3 Windows 8.1 systems, this is the only one that is having the issue. Oddly, this system has only been installed(fresh, not upgraded) for about 2 weeks, so it's pretty clean. So far, no problems with Youtube, Vevo or Hulu, just Netflix, which I'm guessing is due to a security feature of IE11.

The basics are this, I start a video, I can see it starting to que up, then the entire screen (not just the web browser window) turns to static (like the old Antenna TVs)I can hear the video playing in the background, but the video never clears up.

Again, since it's works fine under chrome, I'm guessing it's an IE11 bug, but can't find any settings that fix it. I've tried the usual series of driver updates, but no luck there either.

Try opening the page using IE desktop mode (not the metro UI), then hit F12 to bring up the debug window. Experiment with different document modes or user agent strings. If you find one that works, keep the debug window open and minimize it. I have encountered some streaming sites have not adjusted to IE11. The MSNBC live stream, for example, requires a change to the document mode to make it play.
