    Not able to watch videoclips


    Hi

    After installing Win 8 i am not able to see videoclips, but it is possible to watch the commercials before a clip
    When the clip starts i can hear the sound but it only displays a green screen most of the times. Sometimes it is a black screen

    So my million dollar question is why i can't see it? I have tried different browers and adobe flash player is the newest version.

    Graphic card is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series (Engineering Sample - WDDM v1.20)

    Try installing this Codecs and see whether it helps:Shark007.net - Windows 8 Codecs - WMP12 Codecs

    Hi

    I am directed to the page Shark007.net - Windows 8 Codecs - WMP12 Codecs but there is a lot of links to choose from, the first i can see is SETUP AND USAGE?

    At the top of that page click "Download Codec Pack Free".
    Or
    Download the latest 1.0.9 from Major Geeks. It's in the middle of that page.

    Are you using metro IE to watch youtube? metro IE uses HTML5 and you don't need Adobe Flash, if you are having problem watching youtube in Desktop IE, try installing earlier versions of Flash Player and see whether it helps. Download Flash Player 11.2.202.235 (IE) - FileHippo.com

    Some youtube videos play in metro IE some won't, this is because it's still in development stage and we could expect it to function properly in the Release version of Win8 or the final product. You may find this useful:Google Groups
