    HTML5 videos in IE11

    Online videos on news pages won't load, just sit there spinning. Check element and they are always HTML5. YouTube and most other videos are ok, presumably because they have fallback. Under the element on this HTML video - HTML5 Video is a line "Your browser does not support HTML5 video"

    Got correct up to date media feature pack as per this link:
    Internet explorer 11 under windows 10 does not play HTML5 videos - Super User

    Can't find nowt else on Google that addresses this problem so came to source of all knowledge. Any ideas? Ta.

    PS Apart from "Use another browser" or "Stop reading The Daily Express" I need my daily rant fix.

    Nah, got that wrong. Been looking at how these work and is not a general HTML5 problem, that notice in element was standard part of the fallback. Found various HTML5 only videos that work fine, eg

    This seems to be a Daily Express video problem. Maybe they have wrongly identified me as an inner. Eg. this won't work, just times out:
