    videos will not play in windows 10


    I just upgraded to windows 10 without any installation problems or error massages. However I soon discovered that I am unable to play any videos including any that are on youtube.

    When I do click on one i get distorted audio, no video playback and IE crashes.

    I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience and would appear it if some could post a fix if one is available.

    Thank you

    :)

    Hi Brantley,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Apologize for the difficulties that you're experiencing in Windows 10. Not to worry, we’re here to help you out. Appreciate the steps that you have taken so far to fix this issue.

    Please provide us the following information:


    • Do you receive any error message when you play the video file in Windows Media Player?

      .

  3. Some Videos Will Not Play in Windows 10 OS

    Videos Will Not Play in Windows 10 OS. I did not upgrade to Windows 10; I purchased this new Toshiba with Windows 10 already installed. I'm not going to download and use VLC or purchase a Windows app in order to pay previous purchased music or video.

    Windows Media Player should work as it would on previous versions of Windows, especially since Microsoft purported Windows 10 has the best of Windows 7. Microsoft owes us an update, otherwise, I foresee an imminent class action lawsuit for the "bait and
    switch", deceptive practices and intentional emotional distress, because people buy computers to facilitate their work and lifestyles, not perturb and hinder each.
