I have a problem playing a video on a particular site, and the tech support hasn't been much help on there so I thought maybe someone else might know.

I am able to watch videos mostly anywhere, but on this one particular site I can't figure out why. On their FAQ they mention the videos are protected by DRM windows and can't playback on Mac or Linux (I have 64 bit Vista). The requirements basically ask for WMP 9+ (I have 11), a good internet connection (which I have), and a pretty basic computer. My old one was significantly worse and it was able to watch the videos just fine.

I'm using IE8 to try and view the site as they recommend using IE, and I remember the website being very picky when it comes to which browser works with it and which doesn't. So I'm convinced it must be a browser-related issue that I can't figure out. Any suggestions?

I hope it's okay to post the link, this is the site I am having problems with: www.videosport.com

I have IE8 and had no problem. So you may have to do some trial and error and adjust your WMP settings. DRM should not be an issue.
