I am using a test account so I can try the Google Chromecast app later.

I tried playing a movie on Chrome and Internet explorer, on a Windows 8 laptop and Windows 7 HTPC (both connected via Vodafone cable) and a Windows 7 machine (connected via Snap DSL).

After going back three times on a sequence of "Opening... Individualizing..." messages I get this:



Any ideas, before I go back to Quickflix? Perhaps linked to my test account?

There you go... Removed Microsoft Silverlight from laptop, reinstalled it, applied all updates again and it's working now.

Now to do this on the HTPC in the lounge.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Huh. It seems that when Silverlight fails, it fails spectacularly :)

It was probably a Silverlight DRM problem. From the messages flashing on screen it sounded like it was trying to generate licenses ("individualizing") and failing at some point. Removing and installing again, then updating worked fine.

Glad I could help and yes that last Windows update seemed to be the culprit...
