Microsoft releases Web Media Extensions package for Edge and Windows 10

With the launch of Windows 10, Microsoft also introduced the world to its latest browser, Edge. Despite the heavy push, users are not flocking to use it, with the browser still struggling to gain market share. Today, Microsoft is attempting to push the browser into a better position amongst its competitors with the announcement that it will be offering support for the Web Media Extensions package.

The Web Media Extensions package will give the Edge browser and Windows 10 apps support for open source formats that are frequently found on the internet. When a user installs the package, they will be able to natively play content "delivered in the OGG container or encoded using the Vorbis or Theora codecs."

Once the extension is installed, it will automatically be used by websites and apps without the need for the user to do any extra work. If interested, you can head to the source link down below and download the Web Media Extensions package​ that will come in at roughly 8.55MB.
