Audio tags won't show when users use Windows "N" editions

    Question

  • Hello,

    I have an app in the Windows Store called "Clouder!" that use an audio tag to stream mp3. It works well for everyone so far but I got an email from a user with a Windows "N" version, that can't stream music at all. I didn't know about the Windows "N" version, it is basically, a barebone version, without the media component preinstalled, only for Europe :

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-8/n-editions

    The audio tag simply does not appear in the interface. This is really weird because it should be IE running the app, with no dependency no other installed software.

    I can't reproduce the issue because it only happens on those "N" editions. See a screenshot attached, the media player should be in the app bar.

    Do you have any informations about that?

    Thanks a lot,

    Fabien
