Re: Can't play purchased movies - DRM issue? (Solved)

OK I tried purchasing another movie under Youtube and I could play it on MX Linux 17.1 using Google Chrome. Being that Google owns Youtube, I could see the movie I purchased under my library in both Google Play Movies and Youtube Movies. Once you purchase a movie on Youtube, you have a month to star...

@ dolphin_oracle: Thanks, I'm not sure if that is available for Canada but I will try to find out.
It appears to only be available as a subscription service like Netflix (which I have and works fine on MX), but not in a one-off movie rental.

Re: Can't play purchased movies - DRM issue?

Thanks Jerry. I spent most of the day researching this but ended up going in circles. Widevine is one of the solutions I tested, but could not get it to work. I'm hoping some video guru has a best practice solution for linux, without having to use a casting solution or having to use another device l...

Re: Batch conversion of .csv to .xls

This sounds like a fairly easy Excel macro using VBA (Visual Basic for Applications that comes with Excel). Libreoffice also has a basic macro language called Libreoffice Basic. Do you have Excel available to use for this or do you need a linux-only solution? I did a lot of work using Excel VBA as a...
