      Sky player downloading but not playing

      Hi

      I was using sky player and it would download a film but not play

      I did this to get mine to work (vista SP1), I hope this helps as its a bit of messing.


      Upgrade DRM from this site http://drmlicense.one.microsoft.com/Indivsite/en/indivit.asp

      Instal 4od http://www.channel4.com/4od/index.html

      Uninstall both 4od and sky player (delete any shows first) and then use the below link to remove kontiki

      Reinstal Sky anytime

      It worked for me after a reboot

      Re: Film downloads but not play...my fix

      I had the same problem and eventually overcome by tracing the downloaded Stargate Atlantis episode, (start- file search) discovering that I apparantly didnt have 'rights' to view it and ammending these. Ie Rt click on the file - properties- security and adding my name to the list of users (write your name as entered into the user profiles in Vista) then search names. Tick all the boxes of access and change rights. apply ok etc then the file was playable in realplayer and skyplayer
