    Metro IE10 not rendering embed youtube


    Is there something I have to do to enable it or is it something that doesn't work yet?

    If I hit to view on desktop they appear fine on IE10, but not inside metro.

    Metro IE10 doesn't have Flash Player, and I don't think you can install it in the Metro version.

    Actually, it does - but it's only allowed to work on certain sites. If the site in question isn't on the compatibility list for flash, it won't play the video (even though the ultimate video is hosted from YouTube, which is an allowed site). It's based on the parent domain, not where the video ultimately resides.

    YouTube is already on the compatibility list, but the video you're trying to watch is embeded in another site. Try looking for the video on YouTube's site.

    That would be a pain.. and it actually breaks the site. I have a forum, www.fiebrex.com and I want to be able to view it fully through IE10 metro. It's just ridiculous and honestly breaking, if I can't view the sites as I can through Desktop. Makes metro USELESS.

    Ah...is it important to view it on IE Metro? Technically the point of IE Metro is that it's fast on tablets, which is why they cut Flash support down like that. I'm not sure if you can even add sites to the compatibility list. I think that's managed my Microsoft.

    well... if it is important for tablets, I can view it through my iPad correctly. How is that for a tablet?

    These are the kinds of things that are a FAIL for MS. And If they want to add the feature later, I don't see myself "waiting" 3 years.

    And yes, it is important to view it in metro, isn't it important for Microsoft that I "Want" to use Metro?

    Well, fail's a harsh word. While iOS devices can get something akin to flash installed on them, iOS doesn't officially support it or provide any way to install it through Apple's channels - instead, Adobe wrote a special media server and a client-side plugin that content providers can write to and use to stream "flash" content to iOS devices when it detects an iOS platform. Guess what it does? Converts the flash video to HTML5, and then directs it to the browser.

    Ultimately, it might be wise to potentially do the site with HTML5 video instead, as that's actually more cross-platform and cross-browser, and is easier on battery life to boot (which is the reason no mobile platform really wants flash working on it in the first place, as it's a CPU hog, thus a battery hog). HTML5 video is much easier on the device's CPU and doesn't require anything but a media codec decoder (installable easily by the user, if necessary) on the device.

    If you want to get a site specifically on the flash compatibility list, you have to contact Microsoft to do so.

    The site is not made with flash, its just a youtube embed video. These are the kinds of things Apple gets a lot of praise of, things just work.

    But anyways... I am sure it will be "fixed" in the near future.
