Is youtube broken in IE for anyone else?

For the last 4 days, whenever I access on a Windows 8 machine running IE, desktop or Metro. Within 5 seconds of loading the page it freezes for upwards of 10 seconds. During that time I can pinch to zoom if I'm using touch but no links will respond until the 10 seconds has passed. If I'm typing something into the search bar, it also locks up. During this time I can pull up another tab and use all other sites without issue.

Has anyone else noticed this while using IE? Of course Chrome works fine, but my Windows RT device also has the same issue.
