This is usually due to the way the server that hosts the file works. Sometimes you can find the internal link by crawling around on the page source and it still won't work, trust me I have tried. However I use MPC-HC with MadVR renderer, LAV Splitter, and Smooth Video Project (don't try to use this one unless you have a VERY strong computer).

Of course, you have VLC, which basically sucks BTW. But the first part of my answer explains why you can't stream movies and live PPV events.

VLC media player sometimes doesn't play live stream links either due to missing plugins or not supporting the media type. You can fix this problem by downloading the latest plugin and using the "Add-ons found in browsers. You can also try clearing your cache and cookies for proper streaming.
