Chrome and Amazon Instant Video Streaming

Post by Strong Eagle » Tue, 25 Nov 2014 11:10 pm

I am experiencing a problem that, in spite of searching high and low, I cannot find a solution to the issue.

I have a Toshiba laptop, i5 model, Win7, SP1, current Flash and Silverlight. Inside a Chrome browser, it streams Amazon instant videos just fine. I should note that I have two monitors attached to this laptop, one via HDMI, the other via VGA, and the HDMI monitor is my primary screen at 1920x1080.

I also have an HP laptop, i7 variety that is my home entertainment PC. It is also Win7, SP1, current Flash and Silverlight and barely any installed programs. However, inside a Chrome browser Amazon instant videos will NOT stream. They stream just fine under Internet Explorer, however.

I should note that the primary screen on the HP laptop is broken... cracked with no image, and that I have a 1920x1080 TV hooked into the HDMI port of the laptop. The TV is the primary display. Hulu streams fine under Chrome as does YouTube.

My Chrome browsers are sync'ed together via my Google username. I just cannot find anything on the HP laptop that would keep Amazon from streaming, but obviously, there is something.

Advice and solution appreciated! :D
