I've reinstalled a fresh copy of MSN app. I've created a new profile to see if this was the problem. No Joy. I have other Windows news apps that play video just fine. I've also uninstalled both java and flash reinstalling them with no resolution. Can you help?

First of all, most video sites don't use Flash anymore. They use html5. MSN used to use Microsoft Silverlight. I think Silverlight is being discontinued but I don't know how far that has gotten. Regardless, MSN never used Flash. One of the other two should work.
