    Can Not play Video of any-kind.


    Recently I discovered on my HP ENVY m6 Laptop with Windows 8,

    That when I was trying to watch a Lecture slide on Youtube for class that the Video would not play.

    I was using FireFox web browser and the video started, turned green and the audio played but no video.

    So Next I tried a different video and got the same result.

    Then I tried Internet Explorer, and found that it was also having this issue.

    Then Chrome and the same issue.

    Next I wanted to find out if it was a problem with watching video online or all videos,

    So I went to my library and pulled up a video that is on my hard drive

    and tried to watch it using Windows Media Player and got the same result, the audio plays but no video.

    Has anyone seen something similar to this and if so what can I do to fix it?

    I have run a scan with Norton 360 and found nothing, as well as a scan will MalwareBytes.

    Thank you for any help.

Youtube does not play video.
Hello all, title says it all. Youtube does not play video in IE10, just gives error message. Plays fine in Chrome. Installed Flash Player fine using Chrome, but it`s already integrated into IE10. What gives ? And why can`t we upgrade from IE10 to 11 in 8, but yet we can do it in 7 ?
