Is it possible to play DRM protected WMA in Mediaportal 1.1.x? I have valid licence to play the files in WMP. I found some threads about the Winamp plugin but it doesn't do anything for me. I have Winamp installed and it plays the DRM WMA files fine.

    No we don't play DRM protected stuff.
    It would be possible to do it via a Winamp Input Plugin, but this was no longer supported.
    There is new development, so it might be included in the future, but currently no support.
    Tough i think it is of no use in the long run, since most of the Music shops have dropped DRM already.

    Sorry about that.

    OK, that's what I suspected. Well, it's my fault that I was so stupid and signed for one of those Nokia deals. The DRM sucks big time! And the licence grants only playback on one machine (and the phone) - no burning or anything, just playback. Fail.
