View Full Version : Sky Player

OK, so I have managed to download via downloadstudio a movie from Sky Player.

Unfortunately it will not play in anything other than Sky Player (message appears when double clicked).

How do I remove these constraints?
I would use Anydvd if it was a dvd, is there anything similar or is it as simple as converting it to another format?
Currently saved as a .wmv file.

Please reduce my learning curve.

Ah well.

Am I better copying the played video (via capture audio and video) on Downloadstudio from website rather than downloading?

It appears that Sky Player uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) in their downloaded files, so that would be why they can only be played in Sky Player. If you record the video using DownloadStudio Audio & Video Capture then you will be able to save the video without DRM.

Many thanks.

Program can be downloaded via your software but is then bad video when played back probably because of the DRM influence.

Will just have to do the Audio and Video Capture method in real time.
Pity because it does download much quicker.

Sky Player claims to stream but is very restrictive regarding target hence my preference for Mezzmo.
