Examining encrypted file content

Last update: 2023-10-02

To examine the contents of an FLV or an F4V file by using the Java API, perform the following steps:

  1. Set up your development environment and include all of the JAR files mentioned in Setting up the development environment within your project.
  2. Create a MediaEncrypter instance.
  3. Pass the encrypted file to the MediaEncrypter.examineEncryptedContent method, which returns a KeyMetaData object.
  4. Inspect the information within the KeyMetaData object.

For sample code demonstrating how to extract DRM metadata from an encrypted file, see com.adobe.flashaccess.samples.mediapackager.ExamineContent in the Reference Implementation Command Line Tools “samples” directory.
