    • Thank you for your feedback. We have been unsuccessful reproducing this issue on MS Edge, Could you please let us know if you are experiencing this issue in different environments as well. I would also recommend you to check your Adobe Flash Player setting ( Edge menu “More” / View advanced settings / Use Adobe Flash Player) and make sure it is on. Please keep us posted about resolving your issue we will be happy to assist you.

    • I’m talking about the HTML5 version of the video, with the Flash disabled. All other browsers run perfectly the HTML5 format video trailers, minus Edge. The video should work without the Flash in Edge, get it?

    • I stopped using flash players from any where ,html5 works fine on edge,but then again this is a new zotac build.with comparator installed,(a.i.).it switches between web players on network and is quite experimental it self.friends at nezchel dremmit in tel-aviv sent this software.don’t try this at home.

    • Thank you for your feedback.  Steam uses the WebM format for video playback, which is not supported by Edge.  The next release of Edge will include playback of some VP9 WebM content through the Media Source Extensions.  Unfortunately, this will not fix Steam video playback.  We’d like to expand our WebM support in the future.

      All the best,

    • This limitation seems intentional, to harm Steam. Because the Windows Store is now Steam competitor…

      Talking about that, why MS doesn’t make a big deal with EA/Ubisoft and brings all the current Origin/Uplay games to Windows Store via Centennial/App Converter/something like this. I hate having to install Origin/Uplay clients, the WS+Xbox app can replace these clients.

      Send this idea to your superiors.
