    Install fdshow and it will make WMP play your videos well.

    Install latest Flash version for both Firefox and I.E >>> Download Flash Player 11.3.300.214 Beta 1 (Non-IE) -

    Then after, clear the LSOs super-cookies with this page: AdobeClearFlash

    As for the Metro video app, I have no clue because I don't use it and don't plan on it either.
