February 10th, 2011, 11:48 AM
Is there any way o play an encrypted video?I downloaded a movie in .wmv format, tried to play it in windows 7, it was saying this media is encrypted n licensed, u need to download license n when i tried, license.exe file was a malware. I removed it. I logged on to ubuntu. I tried to play the same video, in gxine, it says video is encrypted its a 705 mb file. Any work around to view this encrypted file in ubuntu? I mean by using vlc, xine, gxine, movie player etc?? I have these 4 media players in my system.
Any suggestions welcome.

I suspect it's a fake file, used to put malware onto windows boxes.

Delete it, and only download from trusted sources ;)
