    Media player bug?


    Whenever I play a video (on Youtube for example) with full screen on, the video will play for a few seconds then revert back to small screen and run another popup ad then play the video from the beginning again. This has been very annoying since the upgrade from Windows 7 since this never happened with Win 7.
    I'm not sure if it's a video driver since those are updated as are all Win 10 drivers and updates. my other thought is it's a popup issue since Win 10 doesn't seem to handle those as well as Win 7 did?
    Any help with this would be awesome!
    Thanks!

    MIcrosoft has stopped paying royalties on codecs that they bundled in previous versions of the player. You need to use a third-party player, such as VLC Player (free in the Store). The cost of these royalties for copies of Windows 10 that they are giving away free could easily exceed a billion dollars.

    You don't need or use a media player to watch YouTube videos, you use a web browser.

    Sounds more like an issue with Flash, although I thought YouTube was going to HTML5 and dumping flash. It isn't related to Media Player, though.

    This is only a work-around, but try Chrome. I've come across a few things that Edge has issues with, so I keep Chrome as a fall-back.

    What about Firefox? It's the only one I've ever used as an alternate browser.

    I agree, try Firefox.

    Why Chrome or Firefox? IE doesn't do this and it's already on the machine.
