    Media autoplay.

    A while ago Microsoft had added a flag that had to do with this but it was removed later.



    Other changes in Edge Canary (Version 78.0.272.0) have to do with the Settings page, the color in the dark mode is now lighter and the Sync options have changed a bit:

    Anyway to force control panel on video windows playing commercial adds


    Apologies - using Vivaldi (Chrome based) but not Chrome. I get the same issue but video controls can be restored by allowing pop ups in per site settings:

    So I click on the button to the left of the address bar to get per site settings and change pop up option to allow (only for that site)

    In Chrome:

    You can allow or block permissions for a specific site. The site will use its settings instead of the default settings.

  3. Microsoft Wireless Display Adaptor - won't play video/audio

    Hi Jake,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for posting your query.

    For the issue with Sound try the below steps and check if this helps in resolving the issue.

    Let’s try simple methods and check if this helps in resolving the issue. Follow the below steps.

    Method 1.

    I would suggest you to run sound audio troubleshooter, it will automatically detect the problem and fix it. Follow the below method.


    • Press Windows key + R and click on
      Control Panel
      .

    • Click on View by: category and click on
      Small icon.

    • Now click on troubleshooting and click on
      Hardware and Sound.

    • Click on Playing Audio and Click on
      Next
      button.
    If the issue still persist, try the below method:

    Method 2.

    Step 1.

    I suggest you to uninstall the sound driver and check.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device manager
      .

    • Now click on Audio input and outputs to expand, right click on the device and click on
      uninstall.

    • Once you are done uninstalling the restart the computer. If should automatically installed the driver.

      If the still persist, try the below steps.
    Step 2.

    I suggest you to update the audio driver and check.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Device manager
      .

      update the software.
    If the above methods did not help to fix the issue, try the below method.

    Method 3.

    I recommend you to go to the computer manufacturer website and download the latest updated sound adapter for Windows 10 and install the same. If the available driver is not for Windows 10 try installing the driver in compatibility mode.


    • Right-click on the setup file of the driver and select Properties.

    • Select Compatibility tab.

    • Check Run this program in Compatibility mode.

    • Let the driver install and then check the functionality.
    For the issue with Netflix, I recommend you to uninstall and re/install the Netflix and check.


    • Go to settings and click on system.

    • Click on App & features and click on the Netflix and
      uninstall it.
    Also, I suggest you to go to the below link and try updating the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter

    Hope this helps. Keep posting us with the status we will be glad to help you.

    Microsoft adds the option to "control if audio and video play automatically on sites" in...

    PS4 external play options

    MKV is a container format which can hold unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or subtitle tracks in one file, but PS4 can play MKV files with the following specification:
    • H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level 4.2
    • MP3, AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)


    Once the MKV you add to PS4 does not meet the above requirements, the problem occurs.


    To solve the issue, there are many methods and here list two of them:

    1. Handbrake is the go to free converter for video files on Mac.

    HandBrake: Open Source Video Transcoder

    Install it and then point it at one of your MKV files and convert to one of the preset MP4 defaults in the Handbrake sidebar. Under "Regular" you should be fine with "Normal" or "High Profile" settings.

    2. A step by step guide on Does PS4 Play MKV.

    The article introduces a detailed guide to help you solve PS4 won't play MKV issue.
