    So, I'm trying to play videos from one of my favorite sites, giantbomb.com, and there just simply nit loading. When I switched to desktop mode, its says I need a browser with html 5. But doesn't IE in WP 8 already support that? Really, its little things like this that frustrate me about windows phone.

    the videos play just fine on IOS. It days it either needs flash or html 5 to play the video. I'm mobile site mode it doesn't state this, it just doesn't load the video.

    No, it doesn't. See Internet Explorer 10 brings HTML5 to Windows Phone 8 in a big way and search for

    "There are some minor differences between Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8 and Internet Explorer 10 for Windows Phone that you need to be aware of. Internet Explorer 10 for Windows Phone does not support the following:

    Inline video"

    This means that WP is not capable of playing embedded HTML5 video (which coincidentally is the reason why MS cannot make a third party HTML5-based YouTube app).


    Sorry - checked and found that other sites with HTML5 embeds do work. It may be something with the way GiantBomb's site is coded.
