No video in IE on virtual Windows 7

All replies

  • I can indeed reproduce this in IE8 on Windows 7 running in VirtualBox. Which virtualization software are you using?

    Because this problem doesn't occur in a non-virtualized environment, I suggest that you report it to the developer of the virtualization software. It might have to do something with hardware acceleration, but I'm not sure.

  • Hi,


    I would like to verify if the issue occurs on physical Windows 7 client. I have tested the issue in Hyper-V running Windows 7. Problem does exist. However, there is no issue on physical Windows 7.


    I will forward this information to the appropriate department through our internal channel. They will take the problem for further research.


    Best Regards,

  • Now I have the answer from Microsoft


    MS knows about that bug and it will remain in Windows 8!

    There will be no fix for that in Windows 7 and we will see if they fix it in Windows 8.


    No workaround for VMs on ESX!

    On Hyper V you need to enable Remote FX.

  • After months of living without Media Player I just received an automatic update of AMD Catalist software for windows 7. This update fixed my Media Player Sound but no video problem.

    I have an ATI Radeon HD 5700 video card and the catalist software is for this card.

  • deanox: are you saying that you're still experiencing a video problem with WMP? If so, I suggest that you ask a new question in this forum and include as much relevant details as possible.
