    Problems with embedded videos in IE 10


    I am having problems with playing embedded videos in IE 10, even in desktop mode. I usually don't care about IE, except that it is my default browser. I expect some videos don't to play in Metro mode, but I do expect them to play when I select view on the desktop.

    Here is a URL that has an embedded video that opens in Chrome, but not in IE 10 desktop:

    Does anyone else have the same issue?

    I have partially answered my own question. The flash add on in IE 10 was disabled by default. Now the above URL plays in both desktop and Metro mode, but the video is invisible. Oh well, I'm halfway there!

How do I get IE to let me play embedded videos? I can watch vids on Youtube, but if I go to a web site where they have embedded videos, it doesn't show them. What I mean is that it doesn't even acknowledge there is a video there. I even had someone with sight look at the site I was on, and she...
