Cannot view films or streaming video - DRM error or OS problem?

Q: Cannot view films or streaming video - DRM error or OS problem?

Hi! Somehow, last week while I was sleeping, I lost the ability to view Netflix instant movies, TV Shows from sites like ABC.com and TNTtv.com, news video from Yahoo and CNN and also cannot hear the broadcast from my local radio station's web site (it's too fuzzy on my stereo). I use IE 6.

I first contacted Netflix support - 3 times - because that's where I initially encountered the problem. When trying to view films I got a Digital Rights Management error. The support people ran through all of their options with me. I also spent the week searching the Internet for solutions. I uninstalled (rolled back) Windows Media Player then installed WMP 11, reset Digital Rights Management, attempted to update my sound driver and maybe more.

It seems my OS is not recognizing the DRM reset. We tried renaming the file to "hide" it, but that hasn't worked.

Because I am unable to view TV episodes on several sites, Yahoo and CNN news videos, and cannot listen to the radio site (though I can hear general sounds on the PC ) the Netflix support people admitted they'd run out of ideas and advised me to contact OS support.

I welcome any ideas or suggestions. Thanks!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I cannot even see the video on my own Myspace page!

I have tried this in three browsers. I cannot watch streaming video from any source, such as Windows Media, or Youtube.

I am running XP Pro on a computer that is quite old...but used to run streaming video just fine.

HELP!
 

A:Help! Can't view streaming video!

Go to a page that has a streaming video that you can't watch.
Windows Media Player opens a black screen.
Put your cursor in the middle of the balck screen.
Right click
A panel will open for you to set up the options, partic. the protocols for receiving the video.

For some reason, I am no longer able to view streaming video from any place on the web. It used to be just Launch.com, but now it doesnt matter where, I cant get anything. I have checked all the security and scripting settings, tried turning off Spysweeper and Pc-cillin real time agent, and still no dice. I am running xp sp2, and the only firewall is my Linksys router (xp firewall is off). Any help on this would be great. Thanks

A:Unable to view Streaming Video

Does this occur with any other media players?

I know the normal streaming video options usually include support
for Quicktime, and Real Media Player. Try downloading either of those
and see if you can access the streaming video. If you can
then we know it's Windows Media Player that maybe corrupted.

Good Luck.

Hey All

Ok I have done EVERYTHING i can possibly find on the net to fix this problem. I am using Firefox 2.0.0.11, Netscape, Safari and IE 7 NONE of them will play any Windows Media Streaming Content. I have installed plugin after plugin that are suppose to fix these problems but no luck at all.

For example, when I go to TSN.ca and click on any of their videos I get an error that says

"Firefox users need to install the following ActiveX compatibility plug-in:
Windows Media Player ActveX plug-in
To begin the installation, you may need to add our site to your list of trusted sites."

So I go ahead and install it and it still dosent work.

Then I try to listen to my Sirius Satellite Radio online, and I can push the play button and it just sits there says I am missing a application/x-oleobject

I have no idea what the problem is, I can listen/watch my Windows Media Player 11 for DVD's and Cd's no problem, just will not work with streaming video. Anybody have any other suggestions??

Hello all,

I recently upgradded my Windows Media player to 10.

In WMP across the top there are several tabs. The last of which is video. Clicking on this I see screen shots of videos with a link beside it that says "play video".

I assume this is free, streaming video. Is this correct?

I cannot play this.

I click on the link and the screen goes black as you would expect, very briefly then the screen goes white. The status bar says "playing" but the screen just stays white.

The progress bar moves as if I'm watching a 9 second video playing on a loop. As it does this the status bar alternates between saying "playing", then "playing playlist: Playlist 5", "clip c",

I went into the MSN Entertainment Download Troubleshooter and everything comes up fine except "Digital Rights Management Test" which comes back as unsuccessful.

I don't know if these two things are connected, but suspect they are.

All the other media I have that I previously had plays fine with no problems what so ever.

Any ideas?

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.
 

A:video playback and streaming. Video card problem or software?

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.

Hi, Gang - Nice to see you again !

I recently installed a Sony DVD burner to add to my CD burner.

My DV camera is a Panasonic 3eed 2.5 mega-pixel.
The results on the screen of the camera, during download with Panasonic's own supplied software, and on the computer screen on re-runs with Real player, etc. are excellent.
The trouble starts when I try to burn - principally using Nero.

The results are apalling and of the poorest quality I have yet seen of any clip.
Bits of knowledge that I have picked up here and there from local gurus, say I have to convert the format. My son says use winavi.converter.
I have tried......and I am having no results.

Can anyone out there help me - and also explain, by the way - why a DV camera, using its own supplied software, doesn't automatically download in a format ready to burn - or am I missing something?

Selwyn.

Hi,
I have been having some issues with my laptop (Dell XPS L502x) crashing intermittently lately. Sometimes it crashes when I turn it on from sleep mode. Other times, it can work fine for a period and then crashes randomly. I have tried to update all drivers as recommended on the Dell driver update page but then today, as I was streaming video content with my laptop connected to my TV via HDMI, I got the BSOD.

As per the posting instructions, I downloaded the dm log collector. But that had problems and closed and automatically removed the dump/log files. I ran it again and managed to make a copy of the folder (SFdebugFiles) before it was automatically deleted again by the program. I have attached a .rar of that folder below.

In addition, I have included a CPU-Z report of my system spec, if that helps.

Thanks for your help

A:BSOD while streaming video, error 0x0000009F

Update:
System crashing randomly on startup; sometimes it works fine but other times it will begin to load up and then power itself off. Then the next time, it loads normally again.

Also I should have mentioned that I recently upgraded the ram to 16gb (2x 8gb). I thought initially that these problems may be related to this but I've done Dell system scans and the memory passes with no errors. Also as you can see from my system, it is recognising the full 16gb so I assume that all are installed correctly.

If anyone can give me some help, that would be great.

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?

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.

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 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).

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 =[

Any ideas?

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.

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.

Is this just on Youtube? Try a different viral video site like Daily Motion.

Hello,

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 am currently doing the following:
Running a MalwareBytes scan
Running a MSE scan
Uninstalling Adobe... Read more

Have you installed/updated ALL of the system and hardware drivers? You should be using the drivers from the manufacturers website, not the default drivers installed by Windows.

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.

Any ideas?

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.

A:BSOD Streaming Video Error ntoskrnl.exe+3249db

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error.... if you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps ... if you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider ..





Quote:
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
Synopsis:

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:
1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.

2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled. If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.

3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware. It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.

4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instructions. Their website should provide detailed instructions as to the brand and model-specific procedure.

5) Rarely, bugs in the OS may cause "... Read more

Hey,

I'm trying to watch an online stream on http://www.theyoungturks.com/ (the one on the homepage). However, I always get a problem where it just doesn't load. WMP tries to open it but stops after about 10 seconds. Sometime the stream works perfectly though, which perhaps means its not WMPs fault, but theres something wrong with the computer. I've tried searching for a solution, but nothing is working. Any tips?

I'm using XP media centre.

Long story short: Whenever I try to view streaming WMV video in my Windows Media Player 10, all I get is the audio. The picture is just black. All local files work though, and my roommate (on college network) CAN view the files that I cannot, so I don't think it's a network thing.

Two videos I cannot see:

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.
