unable to download or stream

Post#1 » Sun Jun 23, 2013 6:54 pm

Hi there,

I have the new Win8. I use Firefox and IQS 6.0, new DIVx and VLC versions are all downloaded and work. When I try to watch a show, the buttons show up such as Divx or VLC or download. If I press download it comes up with "wrong IP". If I click on Divx icon, it says the file is not a Divx file. If I click on VLC and open the VLC player, it doesn't load up or a long error message comes up and it won't play. It happens to any of the movie/show file sharing sites i click onto. What can I do to fix this. Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

I don't have win8 or know anything about it but I would say your being blocked somehow> AVS or Firewall?Parental Controls some sort of block somewhere?

Nice find.
When i direct you to a videohost that you can't download from, use a program like jdownloader http://jdownloader.org/download/index?s=lng_en
Else try this addon for firefox, it can download many things also. http://www.downthemall.net/
Also Internet Download Manager does a good job (IDM) http://www.internetdownloadmanager.com/

Hi there, I have tried allowing VLC and DIVx to get by the firewall. I even turned off the firewall to see what happens but still nothing. I still get the same message (Wrong IP (??)) if I click on "download" or "this file is not a DIVx file" (even though the icon shows up) and it won't play in the VLC player (just doesn't play or an error message pops up). Any other thoughts? thanks.

run a cleaner on the system/TempFiles/Browers <ECT and then a REG clean; you can back up Reg -FF/GC/user/_and/or the _TEMP ;)

Reboot modem after you do the above/same time CleanReboot

After that it will take a WIN 8 user if you can get that far I'm Win 7, but I'm sure it's close to the same?

Good Luck

Return to “Win8”
