Key request workflow on HTML5 TVSDK

Code can request a key through DRMManager.

The Browser TVSDK also exposes a setProtectionData API through the DRMManager object:

[  /** 
   * This will only work for MSE. 
   * <p> Attach key system specific data to use for DRM 
license acquisition. </p> 
   * @param {Object} protectionData - an object containing property names corresponding to key system name strings 
   * (e.g. "org.w3.clearkey") and associated values being instances of 
   * MediaPlayer.vo.protection.ProtectionData. 
   * @returns {AdobePSDK.PSDKErrorCode} kECSuccess or one of the error codes. 
   * @function 
   * @memberof AdobePSDK.DRMManager# 
   */ 
   setProtectionData: function(protectionData) 

Your code would need to call this API before starting content playback the normal way. MediaPlayer.vo.protection.ProtectionData is documented here: https://vm2.dashif.org/dash.js/docs/jsdocs/MediaPlayer.vo.protection.ProtectionData.html

Here is sample protection data object with license server URLs for both PlayReady and Widevine.

var protectionData = { 
   "com.widevine.alpha": { 
                          "serverURL": "https://wv.service.expressplay.com/hms/wv/rights/ 
                           ?ExpressPlayToken=AQAAABIDKA4AAABQuPPoebWWZZD2l3APRKkkagEDOXm

                           l9eavucsWXnA0tafbM-1SSJKXOa70kvxAJ_ybhdcmy7-6g" 
                          }, 
   "com.microsoft.playready": { 
                               "serverURL": "https://expressplay-licensing.axprod.net/ 
                                LicensingService.ashx?ExpressPlayToken=AQAAAw_ZXqcAAAB 
                                gHD1gnn_AMQJKfFCP3k9zbBw2srzBLryJVLXclnjhcSBCz4TBzrtfe 
                                gmSw1hAKdFHTNL-KVBGsI4ygBnfPRBUCvGsVOwpQ944fhq45W06ygJ 
                                roB2xOrM03tbkWcrthI7y_UQdHzufHjcBqKZm8QDoqKpxrxc" 
                               } 
   };

TVSDK does not provide any API to force a particular DRM system because each browser supports one DRM system only.
