Win 8 issue ( new work computer so not in my signature yet). I can't get any video to play from websites (You Tube, BBC etc.) although I can hear the sound. So I've installed Chrome and it all works. I have the latest Flash version and have enabled the add -on. I've changed the setting in IE Advanced options to use software rendering instead of gu. I've disabled Active-X filtering in the safety menu too. Anything else I can try? It's an HP Pavilion laptop. Same issue with desktop and app versions.
