  1. microsoft edge not playing videos in some web pages


    I am using windows 10 and Microsoft edge for my web experience and have done so for some time now.


    everything worked fine up until a couple of weeks or so, ago.


    now, when viewing some websites that have videos in the content, some of those videos open up and after it looks as though they will play, the screen just goes black.

    not all videos on those websites, just some.


    have recent windows updates caused that problem?


    what do you think needs to be done?


    thx

    :)

  3. Microsoft Edge automatically plays videos on websites

    Not true, this is a misconception. Edge behaves like other browsers. If the web page wants to play the video without visitor interaction, the page does so and Edge shows it. If the web page does not want to start the video automatically, then Edge does
    not play it until you start it yourself. As other browsers do as well. So, please complain to the website in question.
