    Sometimes when I try to view a video, WMP wants to acquire a license.
    I'm thinking this is bad but I don't know. I'd rather not download
    anything that would help someone destabilize my precariously balanced
    XP. Suggestions? Can it cause problems to download a license needed
    to view a video file. These would be vids of questionable or unknown

    Its all part of DRM just to ensure that anything you do take the trouble to
    download legally wont be playable for more than a couple of plays because,
    for some unexplained reason the license you thought you had is corrupted,
    missing been abducted etc! That is if WMP doesn't throw a fit and say the
    file's unplayable anyhow for some obscure technical reason!

    Sorry about the rant but I speak from bitter experience!
