The latest Windows OS, Windows 8, comes with Microsoft Internet Explorer already bundled into it. The Microsoft Internet explorer is the latest internet browser provided by Microsoft Corporation. As we all know, things may not function properly initially, and this is exactly what happened with Internet Explorer 10. People are facing various issues while browsing using this web browser. In this article, we will discuss some of the most common problems encountered using Internet Explorer 10.
Some of the usual problems faced are related to videos with IE10 on the latest Windows OS. So, let us see, some of the typical problems include Videos not loading, or sometimes they load but they load as black screen or freeze mid-play. Now, there can be many reasons for this problem. We need to look at them one by one and troubleshoot the issue.
Video playback is not a simple process, as it requires lots of components to work properly. These components include Java, Flash, Silverlight, etc. Then, these components or extensions may be causing the issues. You will find that in certain cases even the hardware acceleration feature in the browser causes these troubles.
Now, you need to analyze the issues step by step. You can begin with enabling or activating the ActiveX controls in Internet Explorer. This may be blocking the videos from playing. You also need to update the versions of Silverlight, Flash Player and Java, as this might be causing one of the problems affecting the video playback in the web browser.

Then you need to select the Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering option.
In case this is not working for you, then you need to check the graphics drivers for your system and then update them to the latest Windows OS version as graphics issues may well be closely connected to the driver software installed.
