Media Playback Error playing protected content

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi trouble shooters,

Having problem with media player or with system configuration? Not sure because I am not able to play my videos. I made some changes in system’s hardware like webcam, upgraded my hard disk and some increased speed. And also I upgraded my media player to new version. Because of these changes am I getting this error? How to solve this error? In any way license is corrupted? Help please.
