I've had similar problems. Come to find out, the problem was I was using Firefox (mozilla) instead of Internet Explorer. I opened the same exact page with the same exact streaming video on it and it worked fine. Make sure that you're using IE to view that streaming video.
If that's not it, do you have a video card? Chances are that an out of date driver may do that. Nvidia had some video issues with their cards for a short while, I believe with the 6600 series and the 7800 series both early on (early releases of the cards. If you have a video card, make sure that your drivers are up to date despite the manufacturer.
Make sure that you have the latest version of direct x, which I believe is Direct X 9.0c.
Also, just to be on the safe side, check to make sure that a router or firewall isn't screwing with something. Have you tried holding ctrl+leftclick on the link to open the streaming video in a new window? Ctrl+left click should allow popups with IE.
Hope this helps.
