    MS Edge and IE 11 does not support html5 video element


    For some reason I can't get IE 11 and MS Edge browsers to play html5 videos. When I go to youtube.com/html5 or html5test.com it shows that video element is not supported (even though those browsers should support it). I have tried everything, reset all settings, even reinstalled ms edge through powershell, installed media feature pack and still no change. I guess there is some setting that I am not aware of, but after searching internet for hours did not find anything. Any ideas why video (and audio too) element might be not supported at all for Egde and IE?

    I have windows 10 N, and installed media features pack, however I also can not find windows media player at all in my system, maybe it is related. Not even in windows features menu in control panel. Strange, it is probably related with Edge problem. I guess I have turned off some settings or smth...

    Ok it seems I had bad media feature pack which did not install anything: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...6-6eb3b740d02e

    After installing from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3099229 it works. Need to be careful as I think google best result returns wrong update link.

    I did have it already, that's why I didn't even notice that windows media player is missing and wouldn't care about it. But it seems media features pack is also integrated into other programs, like MS Edge browser and after installing the correct version of it Edge started supporting html5 video element.

    Yeah KB3010081 is the wrong update which installs without warning. Newer versions of windows 10 needs KB3099229

    I guess this is only for windows 10 N versions that come without preinstalled browsers and media due to EU regulations. If everything works for you then don't worry. If you don't have windows media player or Edge does not support video then install kb3099229
