You need to install VLC. Windows 10 did away with playing DVD's and Microsoft is now charging $15 for a junk DVD player. VLC is free.

MS needs to make money some how seeing as they give us the operating system for free. We should be grateful that they have not blocked  3rd party media players....... YET.

Maybe it is some new DRM Microsoft has baked into Windows 10. Does this app help? What browser are you using. If Edge, try another like Chrome or Firefox. Chrome has flash embedded but you would need to download Flash Player for use with Firefox.

I had a similar problem and as I stated in another post,I installed the K-Lite codec pack which I have been using for years.It in turn installs media player classic and all the problems were solved at least in my case.If you're going to install it,get it from Majorgeeks.

It's a clean site and nothing to worry about.If you google k-lite you have to keep your eyes open.

diggiedo, it would help a lot if you were to give us more information on your issue. What websites are you trying to watch videos on? Can you give us a few URLs? What web browsers are you using? What media player is the website using: HTML5, Flash, etc.? Right now we're just shooting answers randomly and hoping that one works. When you ask for help or ask a question, you need to give as much details as you can so the users here can actually understand the problem, find the issue and give you an appropriate answer.
