Windows 10: Can't view videos on facebook

    Can't view videos on facebook


    I can view videos on youtube perfectly fine. However, when I try to view a video on facebook it tells me I need to install Adobe Flash Player. When I click on "Install Adobe" it redirects me to a page that says I already have windows 10 and flash player is integrated into windows 10 so I cannot install it. It also suggested that maybe my shockwave add-on wasn't enabled but it is. I also tried disabling the Active-X add-on. It didn't work. Is there any other reason why videos on facebook wouldn't be working?



    I have an HP Stream 11 running Windows 10
    It is brand new- just arrived yesterday

    Your best bet is to ask the folks who use HP Stream 11. They should know about the tablet/PC inside out and migh have a trick or 2 to help you.
