    Video playback compatibility


    We are having a heck of a time with video playback compatibility in W8CP.. Any video we try to play has a 50/50 chance of working, either with the metro video player app or good old windows media player.. I've installed a codec pack, but we still have problems and sometimes have no audio or audio with no video..

    Is there a way to check the video for compatibility? All the videos play fine under my W7 machine..
