DRM window$ and CMT

Thought i would like to watch and listen to a couple of CMT videos.

message window had this response:

"Detecting OS...

In order to offer a broad selection of full-length music videos on-demand and free of charge, CMT Loaded uses Windows Digital Rights Management (DRM) to protect videos from unauthorized re-distribution.

Unfortunately, Microsoft's Windows Media Player Plug-in for Macintosh does not support Windows DRM. If DRM support becomes available for Macintosh, CMT will develop a version of CMT Loaded that works on a Mac."

Couple = two?

If so, head to a library, watch the 2 you want and then go home.

Simple, cheap, effective.

Before i bought the Imac

In reply to: Couple = two?

Before i bought the Imac i used to go to the library and do just exactly that. Someone convinced me that the mac was user friendly (and mostly that is true) so i bought one. However, even if i wanted to go to the library, to use one of their many computers, instead of staying in safe and warm and comfortable on a Sunday morning (1) first barrier: it is closed on Sunday (2) i would then have to sign up for an appointment (usually 48 hours hence) and then go on to do as you suggest in a couple of days from now. An alternative solution might be to video-tape the music video from my television set into my Sony Handycam then firewire that result on into my iMac and iMovie could do the rest. All i would have to do then would be to try to guess what time the video i was interested in watching would be coming on. Not that convenient really. Lazy Sunday dictates i will stop this nonsense and just go sleep in front of the TV.

Less eyeballs on tv, more on internet based video.
