Since yesterday I have been having a problem to download getting error - Error getting Metadata (-12). This is for any download.
I upgraded to Beta 5.3 but here it also does not allow downloads.
I am using a Mac on 10.10.4

BUMP

Same here. Running v5.4 and getting error -12 occasionally. (Always seems to be on the one episode of the one show I decide to watch after wasting ten minutes in the dead of night carefully picking... grrr...!)

Same here. I am running version 5.4 for Mac. I haven't been able to see anything due to this Metadata error since Monday, November 23.

UPDATE---
It started working again. Not sure why. I went to the movies page and picked a random one, it loaded... so I went back to the TV show I wanted to watch and it's playing now. Maybe its a glitch?
