And to better answer the question, provider hosted apps are applications that run in a server that is external to SharePoint's. It has its own infrastructure ...
It's true that Office Web Apps server 2010 is very different from Office Web Apps 2013. OWA 2010 should run on a SharePoint Server and a OWA 2013 should run on stand-alone server(s).
The main reason for this is that other server products (Lync, Exchange and so on) also can use OWA.
For this reason, you should install a new Office Web Apps Server (or Farm ...
Office Web Apps Licensing has recently changed (11-24-2014) in regard to SharePoint 2013, when SP2103 was first released, there was no license needed for "Read only" access, and Office client license needed for "edit" (on your honor enforcement).

If Office Web Apps is set up and configured for a SharePoint 2010 environment, then it should exist a site collection feature that enables OWA services in every site collection. (Assuming that it is configured and installed correctly with all the service applications).
You can simply run this in PowerShell to determine if the feature exists or not. If it ...
Unfortunately not. The reason you have a thumbnail in SharePoint is that you have exchanged trust between Office Online Server and SharePoint Server. To the best of my knowledge, you can't exchange trust the same way with a Fileshare. And the fileshare doesn't use an IIS website.

Each user who needs to modify documents must have an Office license, via Software Assurance or via Office 365 subscription. View-only users do not need to have a license.
You can use User License Enforcement should you have users who need view-only and those who are licensed for edit functionality. The license for editing functionality is OfficeWebAppsEdit.
I've seen this happen quite often.
I don't know if you are aware, or tried this already, but Office caches documents in the 'Upload Center'.
As soon as you open a document, it will store a copy in the local machine, and it this causes problems very often, such as the ones you describe.
I can't guarantee that this is the fix for your issue, but you can ...
You need to deploy a separate server dedicated to Office Web Apps that does not have SharePoint installed on it.
In order to edit files in the browser, it requires a license that you can get through Volume Licensing. Getting the Office Web Apps installation now requires you to go through Volume Licensing, even though the product itself is free for read-only....

We raised the issue with Microsoft Support and apparently it's a bug. Will know more soon. In the meantime, the fix is to disable PDF's from being rendered in OWA:
Get-SPWOPIBinding –Application "WordPDF" | Remove-SPWOPIBinding -Confirm:$false
Control whether PDFs open in Word Web App or the default PDF reader

I was having the exact same problem. Using SharePoint 2016, Office 2016, and ADFS 4.0/2016, the only way I can get it to work is to disable ADAL. ADAL is not supported for on-premise Exchange, so I wonder if the same is true for SharePoint as well. SharePoint 2013 in the exact same environment works OK.
Poking around in Fiddler, I can see a few ...
I haven't tried the same before but once i had to deal with this X-Frame-Options thing. See if you can set X-Frame-Options to below for your target site. You must be able to configure this setting in IIS for your site.
X-Frame-Options: ALLOW-FROM https://example.com/
Hope that helps.
Yes and No. If a user can read a document they can download and edit it if they so desire. They just can't edit the document as it exists in your list. This would include the Read and Restricted Read permissions (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc721640(v=office.14).aspx).

OK, upgrading my OWApps to the latest December CU seems to have fixed my problems with IE11. I also noticed a substantial boost in the speed of loading documents into the browser. The install is super easy(even more if you have snapshots to fallback onto):

This behavior could be caused if you have your Alternative Access Mapping (AAM) Default Zone set to use protocol http while your OWA is set to use HTTPS. One solution I found is to change the Default Zone to use HTTPS.

Looks like you dont have the Office Web App installed.
In order to enable the functionality you must have a separate farm. On this second farm you will need Office Web Apps working properly.
These requirements are important to us for a few reasons. The first is the extra server that is required will most likely drive the cost. The second is that Office ...
