I have been using Classic Shell on my Windows 8 64bit machine for several months without issue. It has worked pretty well until a recent update to Windows Shell. Before the update YouTube videos would play without issues. Now when I try to play a video I get a dialog box that says -

You are using an outdated browser, which YouTube no longer supports. Since some features on YouTube may not work, you are viewing a lightweight version of the video page. Go back to the regular page, etc.

I am using IE10 - the latest Flash version, etc. I don't know if the problem is caused by Classic Shell - in fact I uninstalled it and the problem persists. I have tried changing the compatibility views - no effect.

Here's something interesting I found out - this situation occurs in the Windows 8 desktop mode of IE10 - if I open IE10 as a metro app it does not happen.
Go back to the regular page
I think answer has something to do with the desktop versus the metro app version of IE10.

Any thoughts?

As the problem persists even after uninstalling Classic Shell, it is unrelated. Besides adding page title and status bar features, Classic Shell doesn't affect IE in any other way. Try updating your Flash player and make sure your websites like YouTube are not running in Compatibility View (there is a tiny button to the left of the refresh/stop button which will toggle Compatibility View).

Read the Search box usage guide.

I am a Windows enthusiast and helped a little with Classic Shell's testing and usability/UX feedback.
