IE11 stops playing video on a certain website

When I go to this website: http://www.amazingfacts.org/media-library   using IE11, the video starts playing for 3 seconds and then stops.
I tried other browsers and the video works fine.   I tried going to youtube.com using IE11 and that works fine, so I'm puzzeled why this website will not work with IE11.

How do I fix this or what would be causing this issue?

Well... It seems to be doing the same thing for me. That's my Amazing Fact :)
I think it has to do with the coding of the site for IE11. They probably don't support IE11, as it is a "Dead" browser.
I tried increasing Flash Storage for IE11 etc, but no luck. Probably not worth trying to figure it out, as it works fine with modern browsers like Edge, FireFox, Maxthon, Opera & Safari & Chrome as far as I tested.

Same here so the site is not compatible with IE. IE is not anywhere near dead, but the site just does not support IE.

It still supported, but it is being phased out. Which one can look at two ways of course. Bit like Adobe Flash.  I did put the word dead between the "" just try and make it stand out as not truly dead. But I guess I should have written what that implied :) My bad. Sorry.

So how do I make it work with IE?

So what does the website need to do to make it support IE?

I was using Windows 10, IE11 with Adobe Flash and Shockwave updates from 2 days ago.

I can use IE11 with everything I use, and this is the sole exception.

So you really have to ask the website people about their page.
