We have written our own in-house DRM, it’s working for live channels but not on video on demand. Everyone has failed to make DRM work for video on demand.
The CTO asked me to lead R&D on this because it’s top priority and my colleagues have hit a roadblock. I have not worked on our DRM, so I don’t know how our DRM works and how to install it on Wowza, it was done before I joined the company. They’ll send me documentation but I doubt it would be that useful since if they know how to make it work for video on demand, they’d have done so, so I assume that the process is different.
We install our DRM in live channels and we embed a key either in hls.js video player or our android video player…
1- Are there any specific video on demand DRM documentation I should read?
2- Is this possible? My colleague who worked on this before me, said it’s isn’t possible, he hit a roadblock so I’m taking his place
3- Why are live channels so easy and video on demand not?
We want to support offline download, like Netflix, this won’t be possible without DRM.
