No need to mess with the registry. Just make sure hidden items is checked in windows explorer (under view), then navigate to: C:\Users\[USER_NAME]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IECompatData\iecompatdata.xml

Default 100% MS-blessed and documented way

For the XML file edit method please use this path - the environment variable makes it universal:
Code:
Select Code
%HOMEPATH%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IECompatData\iecompatdata.xml
to open the doc for editing cut and paste the following to the command-line or to the Winkey+R run box:
Code:
Select Code
notepad "%HOMEPATH%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\IECompatData\iecompatdata.xml"
If you are content testing one site at a time, there is a 100% documented way of doing this:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr.../jj193557.aspx


Quote:
To test your Flash content in Internet Explorer 10, add the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Flash\DebugDomain
where DebugDomain is a string value specifying the domain name as its data. (For example, movies.contoso.com). For example:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Flash\DebugDomain = movies.contoso.com


Note on the DebugDomain string value:
•Direct URLs to a page or resource are not supported (for example, contoso.com/xyz). Any value containing ‘/’ is not supported, including: http:// (or https://).
•Do not use “www.” prefix, which is stripped (for example, www.movies.yahoo.com loads as http://movies.yahoo.com).
•Only a single domain is supported.

If you find this helpful vote up and get this added to the first post.

Default This doesn't work.

I have a Samsung Series 7 Slate PC running Windows 8 Pro. I have tried to add the following link: cinehoyts dot cl

That site has flash ads and images along the right hand side that only appear when running the desktop app. Can someone please try out that site to verify if it works?

In addition to that, I completely removed the XML file from the directory. However, after removing the file and deleting the browser history inside of the metro browser, youtube still works.

It seems that this file reverts itself back to default after a reboot. My entries are completely gone. Now I will try to set this file to "read only", maybe this will help.

EDIT: Please never mind, issue has been resolved

Guys please dont ask for a specific site whether it works or not. The method has been described pretty thoroughly and works universally. If it dows not work on a specific site there are 2 possible scenarios:
1) the flash file is embedded in an iframe
2) you did something wrong.

Solutions
1) also include the domain of the embedded website (i.e. youtube, vimeo, putlocker, sockshare, gorillavid, etc.)
2) read my steps again and be sure to execute every single one of them in respective order.

are you sure that you unchecked the checkmark to prevent redownloading the list from the microsoft servers? (e.g. the compatibility settings option, see first post)

it seems like you did not delete the browsing history... Deleting the xml file is not a good idea as you will lose flash support afaik.
