Can not play xfinity on demand on-line, on my pc

Can not play xfinity on demand on-line, on my pc

I keep getting "Xfinity Video Player Upgrade" when I try and play a video/movie/TV show on-line from

the xfinity site.

 

See message below;

 

Upgrade your Xfinity Player!

In order to watch On Demand Online videos with "HD-Like" picture quality, you need to install the new Xfinity Player

We're sorry, but for watching On Demand Online videos the following browsers are NOT officially supported at this time:

  • Windows XP: Safari 3/4
  • Windows Vista:  IE 6, Safari 3/4
  • Windows 7:  IE 6/7, Safari 3/4
  • Mac OS 10.4.11+:  IE 6/7/8, Chrome 4

 

I have installed;

 

Windows 7 64 bit, with 8 gig of ram.

 

IE 9 (64 bit and 32 bit),

 

Crome Version 23.0.1271.97 m

 

Safair 5.17

 

The latest version of Flash player as well as silverlight.

 

 

I have tried multiple movies/TV shows on each browser and all give me the upgrade message.

 

 

For example this link below:

Joe,

 

Where would that be? Rememner I have tried 4 different browers (I forgot to add Modzilla).

 

I am able to use HBO to Go, as well as Max to Go and Showtime on-line. All on the same pc that I can not access xfinity on-line.

Re: Can not play xfinity on demand on-line, on my pc

xfinity site runs a modified version of silverlight, you have tons of things work but not xfinity.   make sure you are running a 32 bit browswer to try it.   see below about plugins.

You can also try this.  go here and download this ccleaner.  This program will get rid of old links and dll files and registry entries.  when you try to install and unistall and restart the programs leave behind a lot of garbage.  run this cleaner and then run the registry scanner.   After than restart and see if you can play videos.  Its weird how some people can'[t get this to work and others have no issues.
