Key request workflow on HTML5 TVSDK

Last update: 2023-10-02

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
   * @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. is documented here:

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

var protectionData = {
   "com.widevine.alpha": {
                          "serverURL": "
   "": {
                               "serverURL": "

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