Windows 10: After upgrading to the 1803 version, I am unable to watch media video

    After upgrading to the 1803 version, I am unable to watch media video


    After updating my Windows 10 laptop, video replaying/watching on a browser doesn't work. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Flash Player (needed for HBONordic), this is infuriating. Any advice?

    When I watch HBONordic, I can hear the sound, but the screen stays green. On YT, the videos refuse to load.

    When watching a movie on my computer, with VLC Media Player, I can hear the sound but the screen is black.

    Thanks for help.

    I didn't make a backup before upgrading, isn't that an issue?

    You should have a windows.old folder.

    If so, you can go back to 1709.

    Much too soon to update to 1803.

    Go Back to the Previous Version of Windows in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    Try an older version of VLC, they work just as well as the latest version.

    Or try Windows Movies & TV, it works fine.

    Welcome to TenForums @Alynxx

    I presume that, being in Finland, you have the N edition of Windows 10. If so you may find that installing the Media Feature Pack for Windows 10 N (April 2018)' will help. If you previously had a Media Feature Pack installed that would have been the one for 1709 and may have been uninstalled by the update to 1803. There's a new one to install on 1803, links to get it are in this tutorial.
