I think it means you should click the "Download Fix" button?

Of course!!

The first thing I did was to click the "download fix" but it opens a blank page.

A codec is a piece of coder-decoder software (codec = coder/decoder) that allows your computer to decode a file. At present your pc doesn't understand what the file is.

Just put four quarters in the coin slot on the side, then click on the "Download Fix" button.

In order to copy or convert the video file, you need to resolve the DRM(digital rights management) which is a bit of code that is used to protect from piracy ...

It means that you are trying to view a movie that is copyright protected and your PC has been told not to allow you to view it. There are sites out there that may be able to help you, but we respect intellectual property rights on CR4.
