"This video is free with your Amazon Prime membership"

Every few years, I try to watch a movie or TV show through some mechanism other than "waiting for the torrent".

Lesson learned. Again.

    A few years back I gained a free movie from iTunes via a promotion Apple was doing.

    It starred the two men from Gavin and Stacey.

    It was called Lesbian Vampire Killers. It starred James Corden.

    And I watched it. Never again.

    Question is, why are you trying to watch High Definition Child Porn (HDCP) in the first place?

    How much waiting does it really involve. Usually stuff is on torrents at most a day later. Fully portable, of course.

      Yes, that's almost always the case. Almost.

        If you're looking for "stuff", yeah almost. Meanwhile, it took me years to find a decent torrent of The Devil Rides Out.

        To the HDCP "error" message, pff, my eyeballs don't work as well as they used to, so that 9′6″ image on the wall opposite? Yeah it'd be nice if my projector were recognized properly, but it isn't and I hardly notice.

    Your multimedia setup does not please the capitalist overlords.
    Your existence will be removed and your Amazon gift cards will be erased.

    I love it when all the unskippable trailers and menus work, but the main feature causes the player to hang, and there's no firmware updates available for your player. That's some A+ anti-piracy work you dicks.

    HDMI splitter. Problem solved.

  7. The most frustrating part of this error message, for me, is that Amazon Prime video works just fine ~95% of the time on my Mac Mini (which I don't think does anything one way or the other with HDCP?) outputting to my landlord's ancient flat screen (but hardly thin, so probably early HDMI...?) television, but it'll just puke this every once in a while out of the blue.
