What is the partnership about?
A few months ago, we announced the general availability of Azure Media Services Content Protection (AES and DRM)
service, which enables you to secure your Video-on-demand or live stream content with AES or Microsoft PlayReady. We continue to strive to offer complete solutions and today we have added Widevine support through our partner castLabs
. Now you could deliver video stream with common encryption through Azure Media Services (AMS) , where the PlayReady license comes from AMS and Widevine license comes from castLabs DRMtoday. This blog demonstrates the following solution we built together with castLabs.
How could I get started?
We supplied sample code in Github repository
. This sample code project allows your to configure Content Key ID, Content Key, Token authentication on both castLabs and AMS. As a result, you could receive common encryption video stream into your player, with PlayReady or Widevine license. We have published very detailed walkthrough on MSDN
. Our friends at castLabs have setup a very simple landing page for Azure Media Services customers: http://castlabs.com/company/partners/azure/
