    Default Media player problem

    Hello there,

    I upgraded my computer from Windows 8 to Windows 8 PRO. Everything works fine except one problem. I would like to watch a lecture. the problem is that I can downloaded a lecture and watch it with the external player provided at the site, but I can watch online. The lecture will not open on their website. What is the problem? Is this issue my computer or their website? I have watched the lecture with my xp before, everything is ok.

    Please advice. Thanks for any reply.

    Did your upgrade from Windows 8 to 8 Pro include a Media Center key? That is a separate addon. Had you bought the Pro Pack, it would have been included.

    These are the instructions to get a Free (normally $9.99 addon) to your upgrade package. Yours isn't the typical Windows 8 upgrade that we see here, most are upgrading from 7, Vista & XP.

    Add features - Microsoft Windows

    Though it says it takes up to 72 hours to get your key, don't be surprised if it takes a week.
