I don't know if this is the proper forum to post in.
I use dual screen setup (left is the 19.5" 1996 Sharp CRT TV [NTSC] and right is my old 19" Samsung SyncMaster 5:4 LCD monitor [DVI]), so I can watch videos and use my desktop computer at the same time. I have no problems with my old HDTV tuner cards, recordings, local video files, etc.
However, I cannot do this with Amazon's videos. My CRT TV goes blank black with Amazon's videos streaming in my web browser (Mozilla's SeaMonkey v2.17 and Windows XP Pro. SP3's Internet Explorer v7)'s latest Flash players v1.6 r602.
I have no problems with other streaming videos like on YouTube, Star Wars Clone Wars (e.g., http://starwars.com/explore/the-clone-wars/ep520/
), etc. What is Amazon doing and why? Is it DRM related? I was told it was because the lack of HDCP on my CRT TV?
My detailed setups can be found in http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/about/computers.txt
Thank you in advance.
