    i have been downloading some movies which are .wmv extensions but they
    refuse to play. instead they launch internet explorer and go to microsoft
    to look for a license. i assume this is digital rights management (drm).

    these are old movies which should be free anyway so i don't know why they
    were encoded with drm but it's such a nuisance for media player to keep
    going to microsoft for licenses. half the time, it says the license
    doesn't exist or can't be found but the movie still refuses to play
    without the license.

    is there an aftermarket player that will play these movies without messing
    with drm? something that will just play the movies and ignore the stupid
    drm requirement?

    thank you in advance.
