    IE10 in Windows 2012 server -- cannot play video - sound OK


    Hi there
    the version of IE10 shipped with Server 2012 seems to have a defect -- can't play video from web sites -- sound is fine.

    Not sure if this is actually a real problem as you don't usually do much browsing on a server -- but as this version of IE10 is nearer RTM than that shipped with W8 - this *Could* become a problem. (The current version of Windows 2012 is the Release Candidate).

    The main problem is that IE only launches from the METRO screen --you can pin it to the taskbar but I haven't as yet been able to find any addons that make the video play. (The IE here doesn't function like the metro version on W8 -- it's Windowed with menus etc like the standard desktop version).

    Since I'm going to be running VM's with HYPER-V and won't be using the GUI version of W 2012 this isn't a major problem but it could be to others.

    Cheers

    I didn't check when I installed Server 2012 in a VM a few days ago, but does it have Flash player?
