[BUG][SOLVED] Meteor 1.6, Vimeo's player.js and IE11


I found a conflict between Vimeo’s player.js and Meteor 1.6 in Explorer 11.

With the Vimeo script included in the header in a script tag, the application will not load in IE11. The error reported in the console is

The core-js npm package could not be found in your node_modules directory. Please run the following command to install it: meteor npm install --save core-js

This error is coming from .meteor/local/build/programs/web.browser/packages/ecmascript-runtime-client.js. However this error is not accurate. When the text is removed from the catch statement and replaced with the error coming from the browser, it reads

Error: Out of stack space

Which led me to this issue. I assume that there is some conflict with polyfills in the Vimeo script and the ones in Meteor. Removing player.js resolves the errors.
