  • Hey im having the same here any ideas ?

    @shavecat you should know how the forum works by now. Replying saying same issue with no information is useless. There's even a solution above.

    Start a new topic and provide something to work with.

    I'm stable. Can't say I know for certain what change fixed the DRM message (assuming that's your issue) but no issues here at this time. All my relevant, personal changes are documented in this thread, except now I'm using a lighter theme and exclusively using the latest version of VLC, which renders screensaver video and ES videos when hardware acceleration is off.

    Backup your data first, then I suggest reading through the thread and carefully experiment, reverting changes that you find don't help. Maybe try the Carbon theme (tried and true) for a bit and see how that goes. Be sure your software is up to date (mine is) as of last weekend.
