Error 5084

Hi, I was watching one of my shows just fine, and I left my computer open for a bit and then returned to finish the episode. However, when I tried to play it, it only played for about 1 minute and then this error message came up saying, "This video cannot be played," and had the error number of 5084. Please help!

Re: Error 5084

Error 5084 Can't watch anything

I came back to a paused movie and resumed it. It had played for about 3 minutes then an error screen popped up reporting error code 5084. What the heck is this? I know it has to be on Comcast' side because I have restarted my browser, checked other browsers, restarted my computer, and tried from wifi and ethernet. No settings were changed previous to that error either.

 

Using a Mac with OS X Mavericks and watching on Safari (Got same issue with Chrome)

 

I guess NETFLIX will do for now.

Error message 5048

I was watching a show on line and then the whole video and audio froze up and I received the error message #5048. Now after turning to this forum I see that it is not just me, so I assume that Comcast is working on the problem.

Re: Error 5084 Can't watch anything

Now it's magically fixed. Thanks for the interrupted service Comcast.

I seriously hope so. Because there always seem to be some type of issue with Comcast/Xfinity online that pops-up out of nowhere; and it has long past being "old."
