  1. MS Edge and IE 11 does not support html5 video element


    For some reason I can't get IE 11 and MS Edge browsers to play html5 videos. When I go to youtube.com/html5 or html5test.com it shows that video element is not supported (even though those browsers should support it). I have tried everything, reset all settings, even reinstalled ms edge through powershell, installed media feature pack and still no change. I guess there is some setting that I am not aware of, but after searching internet for hours did not find anything. Any ideas why video (and audio too) element might be not supported at all for Egde and IE?

    :)

    Windows Media Codecs

    I don't have third party codecs installed. This is an issue with a fresh install of Win10 and the MS Edge browser. HTML5 videos are not being rendered correctly by Microsoft's codec. I put an entry on my blog that shows more details on your product's
    problem. If there are more questions please put me directly in contact with the Edge team at MS so I can talk to them as an a fellow engineer.

    See http://illuma.blogspot.com/2015/09/html5-video-rendering-problems-in-web.html

    Chrome and IE 11 with Win7 work, Edge doesn't.

  3. MS Edge freezes PC when playing a video

    I recently purchased a PC with W10. I have both MS Edge and IE 11. If I play a video in MS Edge, it freezes my PC and I have to use the power button to reboot. However I can play the same video in IE 11 with no problems....

    Any suggestions?

  7. I did have it already, that's why I didn't even notice that windows media player is missing and wouldn't care about it. But it seems media features pack is also integrated into other programs, like MS Edge browser and after installing the correct version of it Edge started supporting html5 video element.

  10. Yeah KB3010081 is the wrong update which installs without warning. Newer versions of windows 10 needs KB3099229

  12. I guess this is only for windows 10 N versions that come without preinstalled browsers and media due to EU regulations. If everything works for you then don't worry. If you don't have windows media player or Edge does not support video then install kb3099229
