    That's not Edge's HTML5 that's at fault. It's because the necessary codecs are removed in the N version to meet EU legislation. The Media Pack installs all the bits that the EU insisted that Microsoft removed - something about giving consumers 'freedom of choice'.

    Edge does include Adobe Flash Player, but it's turned off by default. That would probably have worked, even in the N version. If Flash was turned on previously, the upgrade to 1803 would have reset it back to default and turned in off.

    Well, thankfully I have the en-gb English International version, so I don't have an N version to confirm what does (and doesn't) work. With the Media Pack installed your N version should be identical to the full versions.
