When I press play the screen usually goes blank or flashes. If you can find fullscreen button it will work in fullscreen mode.

Given such slim details

It sounds like a flash or driver issue.

Try the most common cure and google this -> DISABLE FLASH HARDWARE ACCELERATION

But if you want better answers, tell more next time.

May switch to chrome but would still like a suggestion on fixing IE. All settings at default.

Chrome usually has the same issue

And the fix is same or similar. Given the change is under 1 minute and immediate with no reboot and you can flip it back, why delay?
