Cannot Play TV Shows or Movies on my Mac

Cannot Play TV Shows or Movies on my Mac

I used to be able to watch videos on my computer but now I can't. I can watch HULU and YouTube videos but not Xfinity.  I get this error:



"This Video Cannot Be Played"

"Sorry, <name of show or movie> is currently unavailable."



Please help, thanks.
