    Ähh, I HAVE silverlight (Version: 4.1.10329.0, 32bit, Windows 7) installed. Otherwise it wouldn't be possible to view the streams in firefox.

    hm, can't seem to get it working here. wmp just won't play those urls... perhaps there is some kind of drm-issue?

    Edit: duh, of course wmp won't play it, it's silverlight...
    Unfortunately we don't have the possibility to play silverlight streams

    hmm, that's bad! But if firefox can "use" silverlight to play this streams even in fullscreen, why shouldn't MP be able to play silverlight streams? Shouldn't there any possibility to "use" Silverlight from within MP? I know, that this might be difficult, but in principle it should be possible, or?

    That's going to bring a lot more challenges with it.
    For starters, we have to "somehow" include a silverlight player as an alternative to the MediaportalPlayer and the WMPlayer.

    And if that is working, we have to figure a way to make the player react to actions like stop, pause etc., and provide status feedback (percentage played/buffered).
    All in all, a pretty time-consuming solution...

    , however here I do have videos (but can't play them due to no account available).

    Thanks to zicoz it's working again!

    I did some experimenting with eurosport live, I am able to get the correct url, only the WMP player isn't able to play silverlight streams.
    You can remove the player="WMP" in the onlinevideosites.xml at the line with <Site name="EuroSport".
    Once that is done, playback is using MPUrlSourceSplitter which may have a better chance at playback. Drawback of that is that when seeking in normal videos, it's very slow/buggy compared to WMP-player (At least here at my system).

    Feel free to experiment, and report back if I should remove player="WMP" in the configuration

    I've just signed up for EuroSport Player in the UK and configured my login in the sites section, however when I go to select EuroSport i get the spinning loading bar for a while and then i just get left at the sites menu.

    Any ideas? i auto-updated on start.

    Can anyone confirm if it's still working? Someone reported it broken...

    And if it is broken: Is anyone willing to share credentials with me so I can fix it?
