    Hope it's fixed now - ? For others that have this problem:
    Go to Control Panel > Program & Features > click on "View Installed Updates"

    Youtube videos run on Edge here no problems with that in the 1709 update, no need for Direfox.
    It uses HTML5 player by default not FlashPlayer.

    I tried everything I could find on the internet & this forum to figure out why youtube couldn't play in Edge. I finally fixed it by right clicking on the sound/volume icon on the right side of the Taskbar, (I've forgotten what that area is called). I then selected 'Playback Devices'. I then played around with the speaker choices & reset the default. I can't remember exactly what I did, but it solved the problem & I can now get YouTube ok with Edge. I would suggest checking with the Windows Media Player first to see if that plays music ok. If it won't then try my suggestion.
