Has MicroSoft released IE10 yet? It's supposed to natively support Flash, perhaps it would handle whatever the issue is better.
Yes - but pertaining to Windows 8 is a bit difficult to explain. - Basically he is a Mobile Platform
Currently I think Windows 8 is releast only for Mobile. In the meantime - as I understand it - IE-10 has 2 available versions a) Metro b) PC ( but consider PC a dirty word here ) Because PC version not available to PC - but currently onl to Mobile.
So Metro IE-10 does not support Flash but PC-IE10 does support Flash, and then Flash needs to be installed - provided the device can insatll and support Flash.
So - more than likely - the Movie inquestion is only available in Flash and not HTML5, so the user of the device need to have: 1) Flash compatable device 2) IE-10 PC version installed --- NOT IE-10 Metro version 3) Flash plugin both installed and enabled to Device->IE-10->Plugins.
