Many Windows 10 users reported encountering an issue while trying to play HTML5 videos in their browser.

The error message Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available interrupts the videos from loading.

The culprit behind this inconvenience is usually Adobe Flash Player. As the internet browsers often use Adobe Flash to run HTML5 videos, a check on Flash Player’s activity is recommended.

Here’s how one user described the issue on Microsoft Answers forum:

When I try to play HTML5 videos in IE9, I get the message that “Your browser does not support HTML5 video”.
NONE of the videos are supported as the video frames give messages that state:
Your browser cannot play H.264 high profile content with the HTML5 video element.
How can I fix this?
