problem w/streaming video and digital rights management

Q: problem w/streaming video and digital rights management

my ability to view vdeo requiring lincense verification
has been screwed up somehow...
when i click on the link at the source website to view the video...win media player 10
automatically comes up and then the license aquisition window appears, but
before it can complete to keep the process moving along....a script error screen
appears and kills the process.
i have done a registry repair, a virus scan, and a spyware scan...and the problem still
exists...the odd thing is... a couple times a video played...but 48 out of 50 times this
same problem occured....i just don't get it.
i'm on win xp service pack 1 and ie 6.
i have attached a pic of this script error screen for reference and a logfile
of a scan.
please help me.. this is driving me nuts !!!!!

Preferred Solution: problem w/streaming video and digital rights management

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: problem w/streaming video and digital rights management

Go to this folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\DRM

- Open Explorer to C:\Documents And Settings
- Click on Tools | Folder Options
- Click on the View TAB, and select "Show Hidden Files And Folders"
- Click Ok
- Click the "All Users" folder
- Rename the DRM folder to DRMOld

If the DRM folder still can't be found:
a. Click on Tools | Folder Options
b. Click on the View TAB, and Uncheck "Hide Protected operating system files (Recommended)"
c. Rename the DRM folder to DRMOld
Note: you can undo the View Options changes outlined in Step (b) if you want.

I am having a problem with the digital rights management. I'm running WMP 11. When I try to watch the licenced content WMP opens and another window opens asking me to login. When I login am told that I have successfully downloaded the licence and I must wait 15seconds then close the window and press play in WMP. When I do this I am asked to login again and the same thing happens.

I have tried to do the above steps after disabling my anti virus software and making sure all firewalls are turned off. I have also followed in detail the steps recommended by the site to ensure that I can download the licences.

So, it seems that the site recognizes my computer and allows me to download the licences, but my computer is either blocking the licence or is unable to read the licences.

I would appreciate any suggestions or help from anyone who has had or is having a problem like this.

Thanks a lot,

Win XP. WMP 11.

I subscribe to a site where they stream a live show. When I try to watch the content, WMP opens and a new window opens asking me to login. I login and the window displays the message "Congratulations! A licence is being delivered to your computer. Please wait 15 seconds, close this window, then press play on Windows Media Player'.

After I wait 15 seconds (or more), I close the window and press play. The the same window opens again and asks me to login. And the same thing happens over and over....

Somethings I have tried:

Antivirus software: Disable (and any firewalls)
: Uninstall and re-install (incase the site was added to a 'white list'(list of sites to block).

Windows Media Player: Roll back to a previous version(9).
: Re-install WMP 11.
: Re-individualize my WMP.
: Use a DRM Reset tool.

Other: Rename the DRM folder to DRMOld.

After I renamed the DRM folder and tried to watch the content streamed from the site. A WindowsMedia Player update opened. After I downloaded this, I checked the new DRM folder.
Then login. Same as above.

QUESTION: Should I be able to see the licence in the DRM folder? (nothing had changed in the new DRM folder after I logged in)

Also: I found the 'revocation list', 'licence' and 'licences' here.

I am having major problems playing some music files previously downloaded from MSN Music: whenever I try to play them, I get the following caption:

A Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM) component encountered a problem. If you are trying to use a file that you obtained from an online store, try going to the online store and getting the appropriate usage rights.

I've made numerous attempts as directed by other on-line sources, particularly "rolling back" to WMP10 and re-installing 11, but nothing seems to be working: even selecting the "recover" option from my download history downloads the music, but without the media rights.

I'm at my wits' end, and would gratefully appreciate any help.

I think the DRM are the ones you purchase. Usually if you play a file (movie or music) it will tell you that it needs to be authenticated.

Sony Corporation are selling CDs with copy protection (see http://www.hmv.co.uk/hmvweb/displayProductDetails.do?ctx=280;-1;-1;-1&sku=385456 for an example). They however implement this by installing a rootkit on users PCs (see http://www.sysinternals.com/blog/2005/10/sony-rootkits-and-digital-rights.html) which is in violation of S3 of the Computer Misuse Act 1990. No mention is made of this or authorisation sought and, due to the way the rootkit works, attempted removal (using a rootkit detector/remover) may disable CD-ROM drives. In addition, it compromises computer security since any other malware could use it to hide themselves and prevent removal by anti-virus software. I have not purchased these CDs or been affected but do wish to report this due to the affect it has on Sony customers.

If you are so inclined, you can make your views known to Sony:

Sony, Rootkits and Digital Rights Management Gone Too Far -


A:Sony, Rootkits and Digital Rights Management Gone Too Far

The company that created the DRM software for Sony has issued an update:

"SonyBMG and First4Internet, the companies caught installing rootkit-like software on the computers of people who bought certain CDs, have taken their first baby steps toward addressing the problem. But they still have a long way to go; and they might even have made the situation worse.

"Yesterday, the companies released a software update that they say ?removes the cloaking technology component that has been recently discussed in a number of articles?. Reading that statement, and the press statements by company representitives, you might think that that?s all the update does. It?s not.

"The update is more than 3.5 megabytes in size, and it appears to contain new versions of almost all the files included in the initial installation of the entire DRM system, as well as creating some new files. In short, they?re not just taking away the rootkit-like function ? they?re almost certainly adding things to the system as well. And once again, they?re not disclosing what they?re doing." - http://www.freedom-to-tinker.com/?p=921

I recently installed Windows Service Pack 2, actually three times after reinstating my computer software to the original state by erasing and reinstalling the full software install CD on my computer's hard drive for Window XP Home. I have no problems playing games with my new FX 5200 Ultra video card by BFG, but I am at random times getting the annoying green screen that blanks out my videos I am streaming or playing(happens when I am streaming more often). Then after that happens usually, the computer reboots or shuts off. I never had this happen before. My computer's memory tests ok so why can I play games with this never happening but when I am streaming or watching video through Windows Media Player, etc do I get the "green screen blankout" and then often the shutdown of my computer? I have 512 MB of system memory and 128 MB of video memory! I use System Mechanic and it shows I have at least half of my memory even during playback so what is the problem here? I can attach my system computer file of my information if you like in an e-mail if it will help. AND YES I HAVE THE DIVX CODECS. I thought about that to and uninstalled and reinstalled them with the same random problems. PLEASE HELP ME. This is really annoying.

Well, it seems u dont have a hardware problem. this problem occurs only when u r watching videos. so i guess its the media player. take my suggestion, stop using it. Download this pack: KLite Codec Pack. I think the latest version is 3.2. Its got all the codecs u need to play compressed videos, and dvds. Its also got an advanced media player which can play any video u open it with like wmv, dat, mpg, rm, mov, avi, divx..... of course, the codecs for these formats r included in the pack.

I'm running Win XP Home with SP2, fully up-to-date, with WMP 10. I had no prior problems with streaming videos. However, I recently installed Nero, after which I find that streaming to WMP 10 no longer works. Instead, the files have to be downloaded first. I've checked the file associations in WMP 10 and Win XP, and ensured that .wmv and .wma files are to be opened with WMP, but that doesn't help.

Shall I try re-installing WMP 10? Or is there some setting in WMP that was overwritten by Nero?

Thx for any advice.

hi, need help..

i'm experiencing a major problem with video streaming or watching videos from sites such as yahoo, nba for morethan a week already; but has no problem watching videos from youtube, metacafe, & the likes or flash videos.

everytime i click a link to a video it doesn't load, and it will stay 1 or 0% all the time. clicking play does nothing. it's just stuck at 0 or 1%, play state is always stuck at "ready". whatever browser i use the result is still the same.

from what i know, nba & yahoo (like featured videos, news) either use Quicktime or Windows Media Player to load & play videos. my prob is it suddenly stopped playing videos for no reason. my media player is upto date, quicktime, realplayer & other codecs are upto date. just wondering why i can't view a video from those sites? does anybody know a solution? anything i need to do?
my OS is XP pro, connection speed is ranging from 700+ to 900+ kbps (dsl connection).
i use IE 6 & Firefox 1.5

I've been having the same problem for a while now. When I try to watch a video online, I can only load a small portion of it at a time. The progress bar will only move part of the way (usually only a minute or two out of a 30 minute video) and then completely stop. I've tried waiting for several hours to see if it's just slow, but it just stops.

It's not a matter of a slow connection--mine is very fast.
This happens both in IE and Firefox. I have cleared my cache and reinstalled Flash Player, but that didn't help either.

I have had a problem for some time now with WMP9 and streaming video. the problem is with all formats EXCEPT .asf and .wmv. those two work fine, all others crash WMP9 with an "unknown error". After this had happened a few times I decided to send an error report on it to see if it might find a fix. It came up witth an article that said I needed to update my copy of MPEG Encoder. I do not have that application(yes it was refering to an application, had a link for me to dl it)
I did at one time attempt to install Adobe Premiere but it did not install correctly and I uninstalled it. it included a version of MPEG Encoder in it, so gave that app a shot, it did not fix the problem.

I can play all media formats if they are on my machine. I can also stream these files using Quicktime or RealOne(but I don't like those apps)
The problem also seems to occur in K++(Kazaa) If I try to preview any video types other than wmv or asf, I get the same error as when streaming.

As I said, this has been going on for a while now, I've looked around, asked around and searched old threads here. I can come up with nothing and no one seems to want to help me other than suggesting a format. I do not subscribe to the theory that a format is a fix for anything, so that is not an option. I need to fix this, it has gone from being a slight annoyance, to being a huge headache.

A:Streaming video problem

Adobe Premiere is known not to uninstall the codecs it has installed and I personally have had problems with this. IIRC all i had to do was to delete the offending files from windows system folder.. I'm sure you can find the exact instructions how to do this if you search the web (that's how i got them).

I am trying to stream video from music.yahoo.com and other sites with embedded video. Media Player just locks up or says "Buffering" or "Connecting" forever. It works fine on any other computer in my house just not mine. I am using media player 10, I also tried installing 9 and had the exact same problem. I don't know if it is a Codec problem or what. I can't figure it out. It has nothing to do with my firewall since the other computers that work fine are on the same firewall. Even reformatting does nothing! Is there a substitute for Media Player that I can use? If I download the file first then play it, then it works fine, I just can't stream direct.

Hello everyone,

I've got a problem with trying to watch streaming videos, they run for a couple of seconds and then stop as they try to buffer.

The thing is, everything was running fine up until a couple of days ago and then this buffering problem happened. I recently did a fresh install of everything, running XP with service pack 3 and the newest version of Firefox. I'm pretty sure my flash player is also up to date. Is anybody else having this problem? Thanks in advance for your help.

I recently did an upgrade on my laptop, just so I can have a clean version of Windows 7 ad start from scratch as the system was feeling a bit clunky. I m planning on doing a clean install and formatting soon (maybe tomorrow), but for now I currently have a problem.

So before the upgrade, I had no problem playing YouTube videos, or any other videos on streaming sites using both Mozilla and Chrome. I could watch videos on wither piece of software at 720p without any problems with lag and stuttering. After this upgrade, nothing seems to work. When I try to watch YouTube videos, even on 360p I will get major slowdown on the video itself and when using the laptop. Thos only occurs when the videos is playing, and when stopped it goes away. I have looked at task manager to see the CPU usage and when playing videos the usage of it is in the high 80s and lower 90s percentages.

The current actions I have taken are these:
I have disabled hardware acceleration in both Adobe Flash Player and Mozilla.
Removed enhancements on audio in case it was audiodg tampering with it (had this problem before)
I have disabled all of the add-ons I have present in the browser, including Adobe Flash Player
When I did this, the Mozilla's own container was still giving me high CPU usage
I have tried booting with just Microsoft applications and drivers running and still get the high usage

I've got a PC having video problems streaming but only with these sites that stream live football games and sports events. It runs fine with youtube etc. No problems with movies or anything like that. All the basic stuff checked like updated video drivers, disk space, flash etc. Also tried disabling hardware accelerator. The sound works fine but the video runs in slow motion. My thinking is the on-board card or lack of memory but the fact it runs other site such as youtube I'm doubting this. BB speed is excellent so this is not the problem. Any ideas?

A:Video streaming problem.

Look to the web pages FAQ's and see what the minimum requirements are. You may need a video card with separate video memory to play this site. Also when streaming, stop the video from automatically starting, and let it buffer for a few minutes (there may be a grey progress bar ahead of the actual playing progress bar)
Be sure to update Java and Shockwave.

I have a Dell SC600 tower computer, several years old. It has a P4 with 2.66 GB speed. I have 2 GB ram, 7200 rpm hard drives and an Internet Connection that varies between 2 and 5 MB. I'm guaranteed 2 MB...but most of the time if I check it, it's a lot faster.

This particular problem has started since I installed Windows 7...I never had it in XP. When I installed Windows 7, I didn't have the problem, it seem to have started recently. It could have started when I replaced RC with the Release version.

When I try to play a Video...regardless of the source, it plays for a few seconds, then stops, then plays for a few seconds, then stops, and never just plays. The Video buffer never fills up...it just stays at the current location. \

I don't mind waiting till the buffer reaches 100% and then start playing the video...but no matter how long I wait, the buffer indicator doesn't move.

I just set up a brand new computer that is having problems across all browsers streaming video from sites like YouTube or Facebook. The video appears to be in slow motion/stuttering.

The PC is a Dell Precision 3620, intel (quad core 3.2 GHz, 3.6 Ghz Turbo, 6MB, w/ HD Graphics 530); 16 GB RAM; integrated graphics card. Windows 7 Professional.

Here is what I've already tried:

*I disabled Hardware Graphic Accelerator on all browsers.
*I made sure Adobe flash is up to date.
*I cleared internet history.
*I made sure windows is totally up to date.
*A different computer at the same location (network drop) did not have trouble streaming videos. Other computers on the same network are not having trouble streaming video.
*I checked memory usage and performance when the videos are stuttering and nothing appears to be taking up an exorbitant amount of resources.
* I checked to see if there was an update for the graphics driver (there wasn't)

I rebooted the computer and for a little while, videos streamed ok, but after a few hours, the user reported that videos were once again stuttering/ appear to be playing in slow motion.

Hi there :)

I'm running into an odd problem. It started a couple days ago for reasons unknown. If I try to play an embedded video, such as this, the video will begin to play in media player as normal, but a download progress window will also open. This didn't use to happen, but here's the really weird part- if I cancel the download progress window, everything is fine; if I let it go the video will either restart, or stop playing all together along with an error message stating that the file cannot be found.

I tried clearing my TIFs, relocating my TIF folder, checked and rechecked every setting I can see, and everything looks fine. It's kind of baffling =[

I am having issues with streaming video from my PC to my TV by means of an HDMI cord. It used to be very simple: I would plug in the HDMI cord to both the PC and TV, change the settings on the T.V. to "HDMI", and on the PC press the "windows key + P" to change the settings to "duplicate" or "extend". I tried clearing everything up with my Norton services, but I can't find any issues.
Now the streaming won't work and I am not sure why. If I create another account on the computer it sometimes works but after enough times of streaming video, that stops working as well. The last time I tried the visual part worked, however I couldn't transfer the sound to the T.V. even when I tried adjusting all the settings. Anyone have any ideas?

I have some John Wayne movies and a set of 6 Doowop video DVD's I bought from Time/Life or something about 3-4 years ago. Every weekend, I like to put these in the PC and watch them while I'm playing around in the kitchen.

Haven't played them for a while (a month or two). Tonight, I tried to put a DVD in and get a message" WMP cannot play this DVD because a problem occurred with Digital Rights Protection".

Why, suddenly, would this happen? These were legitimately purchased DVD's!

I'm not even close to a master in this DRM crappola; however, I do know that these are legitimate DVD's I've been watching for 2 years on the same computer, no changes except hard drives.

Is anyone else frustrated about this? You go purchase a DVD and expect to play it whenever you want, but I guess you're at the mercy of conglomerates...............sigh.

The DRM is getting out of hand......WAY OUT OF HAND.....The next fight will be between Blue-Ray and HD. Then.....again....all your DVD's will be worthless........unless you are one of the fortunuate individuals who can afford a multi-purpose player for both types of programs.

( I knew there was reason I saved all my vhs tapes and player).

I subsequently migrated from Musicmatch to WMP That did seem to be a problem until I moved the files to my laptop. Running WMP from the original computer, everything is (still) fine, but when I try to run from my laptop, I get a "violation of music rights" type of error. When I go to the suggested web site (musicmatch.com) to get those rights, I encounter 404 errors.

I went back through my music files and discovered that only downloads that resulted in .wma files seem to be a problem.

What is going on here and how do I fix it?

Hi, i got this new computer about 3 weeks ago. When i watch streaming (twitch.tv mostly), sometimes it will freeze my browser for 5sec-10sec (but the sound is still going) and come back after. When i try to watch it in 720p or HD, it will lag but only the video 1/2 of the time, while the sounds is just fine.

I updated all my drivers and reinstalled my firefox/chrome.

Over 720p will work for 15mins then starts lagging like crazy. A

Also, when i open anything (i think with ''Flash'') my browser will freeze for 5sec. The chat from twitch.tv beside the video will take for ever to load and make my browser lag.

Thank you.

This is a Windows 7 machine, Pentium 4, 2.667 GHz. I have 2 GB Ram. I got hooked on You-Tube and the old Star Trek series

It worked great for a couple of episodes, then suddenly it would only play for a couple seconds, then a few seconds of loading, then play a few seconds, etc.

It's doing it in nearly every video application.

I have a 5 mb internet connection. When I had the 1 mb connection it worked fine.

I've tried running in full performance mode with none of the Win 7 graphics enhancements, that doesn't help. I'm not sure what else to change.

I have searched many forums, including Microsoft's, and have read various reports of problems streaming video after SP2 has been installed, but have found no solutions. HELP! This is driving me nuts. It doesn't seem to be a universal problem, but in the cases I found, we all have the same symptom: After installing SP2, streaming video with WMP10 no longer works (it just stalls out while trying to connect). If given the option to choose RealPlayer, streaming video will work. So, it appears it's a conflict between WMP10 and SP2. I tried rolling back to WMP9, as it worked for some, but it did not work for me.

I cannot see videos or listen to audios anymore. I keep getting the message of "can not create direct show player" in a small box when I want to listen to any radio programs. Does anyone know what this is about? I don't see any references to this here or elsewhere.
There is a npdsplay at the top of the box.

Can you direct me to where to look?
