Hi all, just installed Quickflix app on my iPad but getting "DRM player error- provisioning error 29". Anyone with similar problems? Called the quickflix tech line and was told that it doesn't work on iPad because it needs silverLight. Apparently the tech had no idea a new iPad app was just released a day before which is capable of playing the videos. She just refused to accept that. In the end she said that she'll put that through to the tech dept.

Got the treatme deal $5 for 5 weeks currently running through my pc to projector, quality seems good but would be nice to have it running on my AppleTV2 or my Panasonic blu ray. Movie collection is a bit old though and new ones are being added everyday so hopefully could turn out good.

Is that $5 for 5 weeks of quickflix? Bugger, how did I miss hearings about that? I would have given it a try!

That's right, it was on treatme last Friday. Works quite well on the pc, average movie is around 1-2gigs. They will roll out HD content in future too. It's $9.99 per month at the moment anyway if you wanted to try. It's a pity my Panasonic blu ray doesn't have the quickflix app on it, maybe Panasonic hasn't released it on their software update because its a pain to hook up my pc to the home theatre.

I'm not a member quickfix, but just installed application to have a look.

I could, play trailers ok on it, and the news and gossip part could get that to play to.

If it needed silver light they wouldn't play, so it's something else.

Hi, silver light is only needed when running off a web browser such as safari. Trailers are ok on mine too but it's the actual movie player part. It's made for the iPad and the player opens up but just displays the error so it's probably a bug.

I've got it running on an iPad also - no problem here (haven't done anything non-vanilla to mine).

Sorted the DRM on my Ipad. Seems to be caused by Jailbreaking. Restored back to factory and it runs fine now.

Out if interest, I also took advantage of that $5 for 3 months offer to check out Quickflix.

Works fine on iPad 2 but was more interested in watching on the telly. After establishing that getting Silverlight working on a Apple TV Gen 1 was not going to happen, decided that will just use Airplay. But that didn't work either. It was quite odd though, as was able to play trailers, but not actual movies. Figured it was possibly an HD issue streaming to the ATV but contacted Quickflix support to check it out.
Their response:

"Unfortunately Airplay has been deemed as a form of duplication of the image, which in terms breaches the piracy legislation.Quickflix had come to the decision to disable this feature for our application."

How lame.

Unless someone comes up with an add-on for XBMC, quite unlikely to continue with further paid subs with Quickflix.
