  1. YouTube won't play on Microsoft Edge


    I was trying to figure out why is YouTube not playing on the browser of Microsoft Edge. I have read different articles online trying to solve this problem. With Google Chrome YouTube is working with no problem but not Microsoft Edge. Is there a reason why can't YouTube run on the Microsoft Edge browser. I did try to fix one part and still the same. The one is from Microsoft Help. And here is below:

    This might fix Edge as well. Not positive.

    1: Open Internet Explorer.
    2: Click the Tools button and go to Internet Options.
    3: On the Advanced tab, browse to the Accelerated graphics section.
    4: Select: Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering.
    5: Click Apply & OK.
    6: Restart your computer and test it.

    I did check in the box with " Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering. Still no help.

    What is the other alternative to fix this problem?

    Thank you,

    John

    :)

  2. Can't see videos on Facebook since my upgrade to Windows 10

    No, I'm on Microsoft Edge right now and FB still won't play videos. YouTube also won't play videos on Chrome or Edge.

  3. Stop New Tabs from Automatically Playing Videos

    In GOOGLE CHROME, you can open multiple YouTube tabs and the videos won't start playing until you select that tab. In MICROSOFT EDGE, if you open multiple tabs, they will all start playing automatically. How can I stop this?

    Internet explorer is different from Edge so those settings are not applicable

  5. Thank you for your reply. Now may I ask you if you are quoting that Internet Explorer is different from Microsoft Edge for YouTube. But I have seen several people are using YouTube on Microsoft Edge. So I believe that it can work on this browser but I need to get this fix before using YouTube on Microsoft Edge. Yes I have used Internet Explorer with YouTube and no problem to show on the browser. I prefer to have one browser not two with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

    I use youtube on Edge a LOT. Do you get audio but no video or neither ? First thing to check is if you have Flash enabled.
    Hit the hamburger menu in upper R corner/Settings/View Advanced Settings. Then turn on 'Use Adobe Flash Player' which will get security updates thru Windows Update in the future

  7. Just checked to see what I have my Adobe Flash Player in advanced settings and already is on.

    So this have to be something else with the problem of YouTube on Microsoft Edge.

    YouTube won't play on Microsoft Edge

    YouTube uses HTML5 Player in preference to Flash Player.
    Edge uses HTML5 Player it does not matter whether Flash is enabled or not.
    Works OK with either here, with Flash Player you may need to enable via the puzzlepiece icon in the address bar on some websites.

    In Edge, try typing about:flags in the address bar to get the Developers Settings page. Then click the 'Reset all flags to default' button.
     
  10. Bree -- I did that already and still no show to get working on YouTube in Edge browser. Thank you for your tip about reset all flags to default button.

    Helmut -- I copy and paste the link that you posted above and came on Edge browser. Show me that all six boxes with blue that support on Edge browser with no problem.

    But can't get YouTube site to work on Edge browser. The only way is that I can run YouTube on Internet Explorer to watch the videos unless someone have a better solution to solve the problem with Adobe Flash or Microsoft Edge to let YouTube run the videos on Edge browser.

    Thank you,

    John

    You do NOT need Adobe Flash on Edge Browser to play U-Tube.

    It has already been posted but will repeat if you still wish to have Adobe Flash.....open Edge and click on three dots top right corner.....scroll down to Advanced Settings.... see attachment.....if Adobe not showing you need to download it then you can choose on or off.

  15. Yes I did with that to make sure Adobe Flash is on in Settings but still doesn't make any difference. I believe that the only way is to reset the PC to solve the problem. Unless you come up with a better idea to solve this problem.
