Hi All

 

Windows 8.1 video playback issue,  cause unknown,  not sure if it's something with Avast causing this or if it's something else

 

 

Happens in IE 11, Xbox video (with local files too), youtube, local news sites

 

anyone have an idea on solving this completely?

Did a Windows 8.1 System Refresh finally, and solved it completely, before that tried different drivers, uninstall/reinstalled flash, finally got it fixed with a  whole system refresh--exact cause unknown, was using Windows Defender off and on before, then Avast, then Defender, now sticking with Avast for good--no more switching, and changing and such

 

 

Everything is functioning fine now, just left out Avast browser protection for the moment.. But I may put that back in, not sure yet...Still updating from the refresh yesterday

For flash files (I'm assuming these are in IE), right click, access settings, and disable hardware acceleration.

For the rest of the operating system, try reverting to an earlier set of drivers.

I run Avast and all my videos render fine in media centre. Try viewing in a desktop application.
