Adobe Flash player is the plugin that comes automatically installed with your Windows 10 Microsoft Edge browser. We need to have Adobe Flash Player enabled on our browsers to load any kind of video on the browser. On many occasions, you will find that YouTube not working just because of the disabled Adobe Flash player. Only enabling the plugin will solve the issue in such circumstances.

If Adobe Flash Player is enabled and still you are facing the issue then it must be due to the outdated version of the Flash Player. Update the Adobe Flash Player plugin to get away from the problem.
