error playing any video on YouTube

Hi all, put simply, I search a topic in Google, switch to video and attempt to play and I get this black screen with an error. I uploaded the screen error as seems simpler to do this way. This happens in Edge and IE in a new 1709 Windows 10 build. I say new because I just re-installed windows - problem persists.

As silly as a problem this seems, I cannot get around it and driving me mad so any help appreciated.

Hi both, sorry for the late feedback.

I also had a problem playing Minecraft for windows 10 on both my laptops. And neither would play youtube. I linked these as something not right with media codecs etc. I discovered i had Windows 10 N version on both machines. I tried the Media pack for Windows N, but that didn't work. So i deployed a non "N" version to both laptops and everything started to work. Thanks both. Hope points split is share?
Thanks for  update.
