  2. black screen when playing videos on microsoft edge

    Hello,

    I just did windows 10 anniversary (Aug2, 2016) on my PC and video on Edge plays audio only and the video part is just showing a black screen. It was working just fine this afternoon before the update.

    thanks

    Video 'artifacting' in Chrome for 7 seconds, black video in Edge and IE for 7 seconds (Facebook, YouTube Gaming) - also on some GIFs

    This is something I've noticed on Facebook mainly, and I believe it's caused by Windows 10 upgrade + latest AMD 15.7 drivers, because those are the only two things that have really been changed recently that could affect it.



    So, what is going on?



    Chrome

    Well, on Chrome there is weird video artifacting; when video starts playing the colors seem to be shifted, some negative, whilst most of the video is black, and then video continues to play normal after 7 seconds.

    Edge

    Microsoft Edge is something I've never tried using, but now I did for testing purposes. The result is that videos, on Facebook at least, play completely black for 7 seconds and then continue playing normally, just like on Chrome. The main difference is that the video is completely black in the beginning, there is no strange artifacting.

    Internet Explorer

    IE has the same black screen like Edge happening for the same amount of time as the two above. However, on IE the video freezes on 7th second for maybe 2 seconds, and then continues to play normally after.



    So, how do I play first 7 seconds normally then? Well, I have to start the video, then just drag the player line back to the beginning or restart the video then it plays normally.



    I've also noticed this on some GIFs on Imgur too. Some GIFs in Chrome have that artifacting for 7 seconds if not viewed in full screen/separate tab in Chrome.

    This also seems to be happening on YouTube Gaming (YouTube's livestreaming service to compete with Twitch). The artifacting is there for about 7 seconds and then it goes away. I've noticed that artifacting sometimes just happens in the facecam of the user, whilst gameplay is intact for those 7 seconds of artifacting.



    I have absolutely no idea what exactly is causing this or what the issue may be.
