  1. Cannot View Video

    Hello. I just created a video using the video editing software called Davinci Resolve 16. I exported it into a USB and then attempted to view the video in the Movies and TV app on my laptop (Dell XPS 15). The video began, but a couple seconds in, it stopped, saying it could not play. It said if the problem continued to retry, so I did, but the video still would not continue to play. It also had this code, "0x800701b1". I do not know what to do. If you could help that would be great.

    Thank You.

  2. Unable to view or download videos from websites

    Hi Nelson,

    Thank you for posting your question in Microsoft Community. We are glad to assist you.

    To help you suggest steps to resolve the issue, I would appreciate if you could answer the following questions:

    • Did you make any specific hardware or software changes prior to this issue?
    • Is the issue specific to a particular website?
    Internet Explorer 11 comes with the latest version of flash player pre-installed. So, the issue may rest with the particular page having compatibility issues with the Internet Explorer or there may be an issue with the flash
    player configuration settings in Internet Explorer. Hence, I would suggest you to try the following diagnostic steps to get started in the correct direction and check if the issue persists:

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to try opening the page in the compatibility view and check if you are able to view the video.

    Fix site display problems with Compatibility View Method 1 does not resolve the issue, proceed to Method 2.

    Method 2:

    Try the additional steps provided in the following link.

    Why won't videos play in Internet Explorer?

    Note: The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature might reset security settings or privacy settings that you added to the list of Trusted Sites. The Reset Internet Explorer
    Settings feature might also reset parental control settings. We recommend that you note these sites before you use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature. Resetting Internet Explorer isn't reversible, and all previous settings are lost after reset.

    Method 3:

    As slightly mentioned in the Method 2, make sure that the necessary add-ons are enabled in Internet Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Open Internet Explorer.
    • Tap or click the Tools button
    • In the Currently loaded add-ons list, click Run without Permissions.
    • Look for the following add-ons in the list that's displayed. If any of these add-ons are listed, make sure the Status for each is listed as Enabled.
    • Shockwave Active X Control
    • Shockwave Flash Object
    • Java Plug-in (may be multiple add-ons)
    • QuickTime Plug-in (may be multiple add-ons)
    • Windows Media Player
    Having done the above steps, check if the websites are functioning properly.

    Hope this information is helpful. If the issue still persists, please post back for further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.
