Google earth plug in willnot work on win8.1?

Hi I use an app called map my ride to log my bike rides etc. There is a section where you can run a fly by 3D video of your journey, this used to work fine in win7 but I have never got it to work in win8.1. It keeps saying I need the latest google earth plug in to make it work. It is the latest version and its installed ok as far as I can see but it still will not play the 3d video. Is there something else I need to install to get this feature to work? I have tried all sorts without success. I am running win8.1pro with media centre 64bit o/s

There is a newer version, apparently, if not already got, of Google Earth, link here, click on new version.

I think that the actual app isn't very good. View the ratings, click here.

I'd search for another one if possible.
