I went ahead and updated the OS on my ASUS G76VW-DS71 to Windows 8. Everything seems to be working fine, except for on thing:
None of the streaming apps (Netflix, Hulu Plus, TuneIn, Youtube) will actually stream anything. The apps starts up and I can select a video, but when I press play the streaming will not start (Netflix get stuck on 97%). I can stream from all the services if I use a web browser but not from the Windows 8 apps. Also, the Skype app immediately shuts down when trying to open it up.
Any ideas what the cause is and how to fix it?
The Windows Firewall is allowing the apps to pass through. I also turned it off but it did not help.
