The error is not with your computer. Its with the server of the site where you watch movies. Sometimes they just stream their movies on selected countries that are not available in your country.
But if you are talking about watching movies in your computer without the use of the internet the problem is with your media player, not all media player plays all kinds of video extensions but if this is the problem I recommend you to use VLC media player.
Another option is for you to just download the movie from the internet for to watch.

The error which occurred (n8211) while loading the movies is called a netflix.com player issue. This problem can solve by adding a netflix.com as a trusted site in your internet explorer browser. Simply go in to control panel > Internet options and find the security tab. Then go in to Trusted Sites, then select the Sites button.

Place uncheck button on the Require server verification check box.

And delete others in the website field and add netflix.com in the zone field. Then you can add it and close the application. 

Please try it after those steps and restart the machine. Then you can buffer movies without an error..

I thought you are receiving that error on a media player but previous posts are mentioning about Netflix and it so happens, this error is common on Netflix. So, if you are watching the movies on Netflix and you keep receiving “Error N8211,” the problem is related to the Silverlight plug-in. Netflix requires this plug-in to play movies and TV shows on the computer.

To fix the problem, try using a different browser. If you’re on Microsoft Windows, make sure you have the latest version of the browser that supports HTML5. For Chrome, download the latest Google Chrome browser. The latest version now supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. Windows XP and Windows Vista have been dropped and are no longer supported.

For Firefox, download the latest Mozilla Firefox browser. For Opera, download the latest Opera for Windows PC. Like Google Chrome, Opera now also supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. It no longer supports Windows XP and Windows Vista. See if this works.
