Other things you can do:
I guess it's something to do with lack of support for flash.
Is this correct?
Also my Metro browser and my desktop browser seem exactly the same. Are they?
When I click on the icon in the Metro view and so some surfing then close the browser down I end up at the desk top not back at start screen. I say this because i note you've often asked whether I'm in metro mode of desktop mode and they both look/feel exactly the same - unlike when I use IE on my surfaceRT. Metro mode is distinctly different from desk top. And all videos play okay on it.
Either way I can't watch quite a number of online videos. In either the metro or desktop IE.
When I try to download and add the latest version of Adobe flash I get stopped from installing it.
Again is this because of Microsofts desire to not support flash?
I've stopped using IE if I'm going to a sight where I want to watch video as I'm never sure if it will shut me down. I take it most Youtube is flash as I can't watch anything there.
well that's not true. Some of the adds play okay but when I try to watch a posted Youtube clip the browser shuts down.
