Hello guys, today i was trying to watch a video on a site called HDphysiques, I am a member, but the videos don't seem to want to open. I get the following error every time i try to watch a video: flip4mac wmv is unable to play drm protected content. I'm really annoyed by this because it never happened to me with other website, and I also want to download the movies and not just stream them on my web browser. Is there a solution to this problem? Thanks!

If the files are drm protected then nope because drm wmv files are not playable on OSX. The only real option at this point is to either use bootcamp, or setup a VM with Windows and watch the videos within that.
