    Hey guys, not sure if this is in the right place, apologies if it isn't.

    I have the Nokia Icon, and I'm using the default Internet Explorer app. When looking at videos, say a football video on a sports site, the video player is completely unresponsive, the entire video area just acts like a picture. I literally can't do anything with it.

    Youtube videos work fine, it just seems to be videos in the browser. I don't see any setting to prevent video loading, so I'm stumped.

    Any ideas!

    That most likely means that the video player on the site isn't optimized for IE, as usual. Generally, all you can do is to switch over to a mobile version of the site, or get an app for it (or complain to the site itself, but they generally won't listen.)

    Its also possible that the videos/site uses flash to display them, which isn't supported on mobile devices (some androids work with flash but I think you have to root it or something now to get it to work)
    Youtube works because it uses HTML5.
