I'm counting on you

The night is so wild
And downstairs the child is sleeping
Her spirit is free
For more than an hour
I have walked in the rain
I've been wondering
What will she be?
But where are the heroes?
Where are the dreams that I had
When I was young?
Am I hoping in vain
Just to think
She could change anything?
Well, I'm counting on you

I'm counting on you
To bring that sweet gentleness to your world
And all that you do
My generation is losing its way
We don't know
What we're leaving for you
So may there be millions to feel like you do
Oh, my love

There is so much to know
There is so far to go
But you are not alone
When this is your world
And I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you

Come to me
Turn to me
Give me your eyes
When you see
The mysteries of time
Here there are those
Who just live in the past
They will never
Let history lie
And this sad little island
Is breaking my heart with it's dark
Shades of green
And as hard as I try
I just cannot see why this should be

There is so much to know
There is so far to go
But you are not alone
When this is your world
And I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you
I'm counting on you

Looking at the PM forum, there are LOTS of new topics about video playing, perhaps that is a better place to continue a discussion.

I'm going to close this thread before it becomes as negative and disrepectful of us here at LzD as it is over there.

As a refresher, our forum rules can be found here:  https://www.landzdown.com/welcome-to-the-landzdown-forum/welcome-to-landzown-get-computer-help-here!/

Stay home. Stay safe. Save lives.

Hopefully to a basic online reading comprehension course, good luck.

Moderate/mediate - do you understand either/both?
:( Of course I do. And yet I see no mediating going on in that PM thread - at least not by those who are supposed to moderate.

I'm defending no-one and everyone
Right - and reading back through this thread, I must have missed where you expressed an understanding of plodr's position too.  ::) I missed where you said you understand why she felt there was a problem with PM playing some video files. And how you understood how the error message might lead one to believe the problem could be related to HTML5. Or why she might feel the staff there was being dismissive.

I guess I need more coffee this morning because reading through this thread again, I see where you excused Moonchild by saying he didn't have the time to test the issue before he told plodr to use her brain. I see where you excused Tobin because he is in the US and does not need a VPN. I see where you excused their behavior because things were "difficult/hectic/repetitive". I see where you excused Tobin because he is not a moderator of that specific forum. I see where you defended PM for not supporting built in pdf reading and DRM due to bloat. I just don't see any defense for Liz's position at all. But you say you defend "everyone" so it must be in there somewhere.

Oh well.

FTR, if Moonchild doesn't want to put DRM support in PM, that's fine. I'm really am perfectly okay with that. As you correctly noted, PM is a browser. It is not a media player. But since PM does support playing several other media formats, I think it would be good if they posted a list of media formats they do support, perhaps on their FAQ page rather than assume all users should automatically know it doesn't support DRM files - so they don't feel compelled to belittle them when they don't. :( Perhaps you could ask your friends over there to do that? Just a thought.

I'm moving on.

Does it look something like the attached picture? When you open it, if you do not have an email open to read do you see a picture of a snowy mountain in the background with some trees in the foreground?

If yes, this is the Modern UI Mail app (or Universal app or whatever Microsoft's calling it now). You may need to delete and then add your Gmail account back.

It's just a blue envelope
