Windows 7: IE 11 - Why Won't Video Play After A While Using My Computer?

03 Oct 2016   #1

IE 11 - Why Won't Video Play After A While Using My Computer?


This has been a problem for a while and I never really thought to ask about it, since everything is fine again once I reboot - but now I want to finally ask:

Why is it when I use my computer for a while - say a couple of hours or so, YouTube videos will no longer play and I get error messages.

As I said, when I reboot - everything works fine again. So is there something with Windows 7/IE 11 that sort of "crashes" after a while and needs to be refreshed/restarted with a reboot?

The image below is the error messages I get. Each video has a different error playback ID.

So is there actually a problem or does IE 11 just need to be restarted after a while of constant online browsing - it loses power after a while so to speak.
