Youtube videos stop and more

Hello,

Installed windows 8 pro and have 2 questions.

First, when I watch a video on youtube, the video stops everytime I go back to the Metro screen... anyway to fix this? it's kinda stupid when I listen to music and want it to run in the background.

Also, is there any way to remove Bing as the goto engine for IE? I'd much rather it be Google... (solved this part.. did it outside Metro)

Thanks

You'll have to use the Desktop version of IE. It's simple to change that, open up the Desktop version, hit the settings cog, Internet options, hit the Programs tab, and then choose how IE defaults its actions.

The immersive, or metro version, doesn't continue video playback as the idea is that if you have a video running, you'd want to see it.
