Amazon Instant video not working because HDCP

Posted on

Problem :

I am trying to watch a show on my laptop with Amazon Instant video but it is telling my that my PC does not support HDCP. I’m running windows at 1920×1080 just fine.

My laptop has a GTX 470m and a very high quality display. I have tried running Amazon Instant video in both Chrome and IE9 but neither of them work. Is there any way that I can get this to work on my laptop?

P.S. this works just find on my work laptop which is a very small POS computer and that’s why I’m so confused that I am getting an error when I try to run it on my very nice personal computer.

Solution :

I did some research and found out that it was a silverlight problem. By disabling silverlight I was able to get my Amazon Instant video working. I’m not sure exactly why that is, but it worked.
