This affects only DRM-controlled HTML5 audio and video.
Hi I used to have an old version of Windows Media Player (pre-version 8), which used to play most tracks (WMA files) fine but I thought that I would upgrade to version 11. At last - thanks for this post - I have struggled for ages to find the right link with the Upgrade button not greyed out - and I was misleading myself with a DRM folder in another location - when I finally followed the exact steps it all worked - I am very very grateful to you for this post. Firstly, please close Windows Media Player if it is currently running. Please take the following steps to make it visible: 1. I just downloaded my first two songs today from Wal Mart and have been frustrated for about two hours trying to figure out how to play them.

Digital Rights Management (DRM) is technology that enables online video and audio services to enforce that the content they provide is used in accordance with their requirements.
This technology may restrict some of the things you can do in the browser.
has never been found by Windows Update for me, so I must download and install it manually each time I repair/reinstall Windows XP.
It's required by music utilizing more recent versions of DRM, so t's a likely culprit and worth a shot.
This CDM implements a DRM system called Adobe Primetime, which was previously available via the Adobe Flash plugin.
I've been suffering the same problem and there's no hint from Microsoft as to how to solve it. Click Upgrade to download and install the required component.". I can't really tell what upgrade it is trying to access as WMP seems to be fully up to date. The only thing I now wonder is if I should go back to the DRMbackup folder and delete it.
i\u0027ve searched hours on the microsoft website to no avail.
i\u0027ve tried uninstalling\/reintalling, and updating wmp and still the same problem. btw, im trying to stream the killers album off the mtv website if that info helps at all.
While some DRM-controlled content can be viewed using the Adobe Flash or Microsoft Silverlight plugin, many services are moving towards HTML5 video that requires a different DRM mechanism called a Content Decryption Module (CDM).
In Firefox version 51 and below, Firefox on Windows supports HTML5 playback of DRM-controlled video and audio content through the Adobe Primetime CDM.
