Hi, while using Steam Link and trying to watch Rupaul's Drag Race on my TV downstairs I can see the video playing my PC monitor but not on my TV; however, the sound is fine and I can see the image playing in the preview thumbnails when I hover my cursor over the play bar on the video. YouTube works fine but when I try the NowTV app the image will play for about five seconds then go black and I can hear the sound again just like on the WOW Presents video. Does anybody know why this is happening and how I can fix it? Thanks :D

Likely due to DRM. Unfortunately, I don't think there's a way around that with the setup you currently have. I think your only option at this point would be to install the app on one of the supported devices listed at https://www.nowtv.com/devices and connect it to your TV directly.

You're definitely not alone though: https://community.nowtv.com/t5/PC-Mac/NOW-TV-have-removed-support-for-watching-NOW-TV-by-streaming/td-p/440528
Ah yes!! I don't know why I didn't think of that as it makes perfect sense. Thanks for your reply as at least now I can stop fruitlessly troubleshooting 😵‍💫
