Have you tried using IE 11 instead for those sites. Does that work. I believe Edge is still being developed and IE 11 is available for those sites that don't display correctly in Edge.

Hi,

I'm having the same problem. Flash is anabled in the adavanced settings yet when I go to any website with Flash I get a message that I need to install Flash.


I tried going to the Adobe website. It checked my browser and said that I don't have Active X turned on. The Edge browser doesn't support Active X so I'm pretty much stuck. I prefer not using IE 11 as I never liked it and was waiting for Edge to be released with Win10. Now that I can't get Edge to work with Flash, I'll be going back to Google Chrome.

Microsoft needs to examine this problem. As more people upgrade to Win10 the complaints will increase with it.

Flash enabled on Edge for me too. Not working. Tip to update was not a helpful tip.  At least not yet.

I was helped to be able to view the videos in Chrome by someone in another forum.  In Chrome, go to settings, scroll down, click on "show advanced settings"...scroll down to System, and uncheck the box next to "use hardware acceleration when available".  I can now watch videos using Chrome! 

But asked how to do the same in Edge, and cannot even find WHERE the settings are....

Same problem here. The Edge setting for Adobe Flash is "ON". Cannot load any flash sites/streaming/videos.

Have been trying to solve this for the last 10 days. MS does not show any solution to date.

i have this issue also

If you use chrome you need to use hardware acceleration when a available.

Edge and IE11 is the opposite. You have to go to internet options, advance settings, and click on use software rendering instead of GPU rendering. Then re-start your computer. IE 11 manages the advanced settings for Edge too, so this solves the issue for both EDGE and IE11.  However, for whatever reason, if you use private mode, it still doesn't work.

This is a bug the MS needs to work out.
