Unified Origin - DRM¶
Unified Origin supports all major DRM systems. If you are packaging content for offline, please see Unified Packager.
This section describes the on-the-fly encryption possibilities: encryption is added when the fragment is served. This works for both clear and pre-encrypted content for VOD as well as for Live.
Schematically this looks like the following:
GET drm keys --> origin <-- (encrypted) hds|hls|hss|dash
The following matrix shows the possible combinations of the various DRM systems and the ABR playout formats, integration with DRM providers is documented where applicable within the actual DRM documentation.
|Digital Rights Management||MPEG-DASH||HDS||TS HLS||fMP4 HLS||HSS|
When DRM is enabled for (a) certain format(s), Unified Origin will automatically
disable playout of the formats that are not protected. To override this default
behaviour, explicity signal that playout of the unprotected (‘clear’) format(s)
should be allowed by using
--[iss|hls|hds|mpd].playout=clear when generating
the server manifest.

Please note that a key (key id or content key) of ‘0’ (e.g.
0x00000000000000000000000000000000) is not valid in any of
the DRMs outlined above.
