    Kanopy.com is a website with a lot of classic films(Rashamon, Seven Samurai, etc...). I've never been able to get one to play, usually producing a Digital Rights Management Issue error when I try. I've been told it doesn't work with WinXP. Has anyone found a way to get around the DRM error and play the films? You need to have a library card from certain libraries (Los Angeles City Library, in my case) to use it and it's free.

    Can you not download the streams? I know I have a classic film that I was able to download somewhere from the stream and can play it using vlc.

    The movie won't start streaming so I can't download the stream even if I had a way to do so. The DRM error comes up the second I click on PLAY. If there is another way, I'd love to hear about it.
