Worse than just developing proprietary software, they are
implementing DRM - Digital Restrictions Management.

So the answer is: It won't run on anything but Windows.

But you shouldn't run this. It's worse than just a proprietary

running this the more people will feel pressure to run this.

You should use a free torrent client to download and see
those videos.
