    I had problems playing videos on multiple browsers, turns out it is a problem with Windows N edition, because it does not contain windows media player. To solve this on Windows N, install Windows media feature pack.

    BTW, I think I have found another "bug" or missing feature. Are you guys able to sort bookmarks by date added? I have now sorted them by nickname, but there seem to be no way to go back.
