  1. All of a sudden today any videos are not playing right!!!


    I have never had any problems at all with this. All day yesterday everything was fine. Today when I try to play a video on YouTube or Instagram they show up really weird. The picture of what should be in the video is fine but when I click to start it is goes all fuzzy and as if it were filmed so close up you can't see almost anything. I am on Windows 10 as I have been since it came out, I have not changed a thing and everything else on the computer works perfectly. Just videos are not playing right. Please help me.

    P.S. I wasn't sure what to put below for topic. Sorry if this is incorrect.

    video not playing

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    1. May I know, which video player you are using to play the video?
    2. Are you able to play the video on any other computer?
    3. Are you facing the issue with only specific video or with all the other videos?

    This issue could also occur when the USB or SD card is corrupted when you have transferred the video.

    Try the troubleshooting methods provided below to further narrow down the root cause of the issue.

    Method 1: Try a different video player.

    1. Try to use a different USB to transfer the video, if you are playing it on other computer or device.
    2. I suggest you to try a different video player and check if it plays.
    3. You can also check on different device or computer.

    Step: Run Windows Media player troubleshooter.

    1. Press Windows + R key on your keyboard together.
    2. Copy and paste the below command and run each at a time and follow the onscreen instruction on the troubleshooter
    3. msdt.exe -id WindowsMediaPlayerConfigurationDiagnostic
    4. msdt.exe -id WindowsMediaPlayerLibraryDiagnostic
    5. msdt.exe -id WindowsMediaPlayerDVDDiagnostic
    6. Reboot the computer and check.
    If you still face the issue, reply to this post with more information.

    Hope it helps,

  3. Videos don't play right on windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your interest on Windows 10.

    Before we proceed I would like you to answer the following questions:


    • Do you receive any error message?

    • Does the issue occur only when you play video in a particular website?
    I suggest you to follow the methods below:

    If the issue persists in all websites then the issue might be occurring due to the add ons such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, or QuickTime to play video or audio files.

    Method 1

    If the issue persists in Internet Explorer also then I suggest you to refer to the following article and check.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/videos-dont-work#ie=ie-11


    Disclaimer: Please note that resetting Internet Explorer Settings will reset all user-defined settings including those set by installed extensions, toolbars and other add-ons to IE Defaults. This includes all Security, Privacy and Zone
    settings. Also this will clear browsing history, delete all temporary Internet Files, cookies, form data and especially all stored passwords.


    If the issue persists,

    Method 2

    I suggest you to update the graphics driver and check.

    Step 1.Press Windows and X keys together.

    Step 2. Click on Device Manager.

    Step 3. Expand display adapter..

    Step 4. Right click on display adapter click onUpdate the driver software.

    Please refer the article below:

    How to: Install and Update Hardware Drivers in Windows 10

    Method 3

    Turn off hardware acceleration.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below:

    To turn off hardware acceleration

    • open Internet Explorer for the desktop.
    • Tap or click the Tools button.
    • Tap or click Internet Options.
    • Tap or click the
      Advanced
      tab.
    • Select Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering.
    • Tap or click OK. You must
      close and reopen Internet Explorer for changes to take effect.

    Please get back to us with updated status. We will be happy to assist you further.
