Can anyone watch DRM videos?

Post#1 by fulalas » 12 Feb 2019, 07:22

I'm failing to watch DRM protected videos on Linux, like these:

https://demo.castlabs.com/
https://www.tvnz.co.nz/shows/the-hard-s ... igel-latta (user: sweetking@mailinator.com / pass: 123456789)

Tested on Firefox 60 and Opera 58. I also tried on Xubuntu 18.10, but no success. :(

On Windows it works out of the box :unknown:

the castlabs demo(big buck bunny) is playing ok in firefox 65 in arch .. i'll check out porteus later.. afaiui firefox comes with widevine plugin:
Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.
This plugin enables playback of encrypted media in compliance with the Encrypted Media Extensions specification. Encrypted media is typically used by sites to protect against copying of premium media content. Visit https://www.w3.org/TR/encrypted-media/ for more information on Encrypted Media Extensions.
can't login to tvnz from outside of nz :)

I'm aware that Firefox can auto-install Widevine plugin. Actually I wrote a tutorial 2 years ago teaching how to watch Netflix on Porteus x64.

You have to pay attention that not all videos from Castlabs are DRM protected. If you click on a DRM sample you should see a tooltip at the right of the video (while it plays!) with something like:

Code: Select all

PROTECTION: ENCRYPTED
DRM used: [something]
Here's another sample: https://bitmovin.com/demos/drm

On Firefox I get:

Code: Select all

Detected [ICON], using widevine
License request failed
(DRM_FAILED_LICENSE_REQUEST)
:wall:

I'm suspecting that our ffmpeg build is broken somehow...

Thanks, guys!

@neko, confirmed! It works even with other Firefox versions. It seems to be a problem related to our recent ffmpeg build for internal test (i.e. Porteus 5).

Thanks!

Oh, and Opera doesn't play DRM contents anymore (I'm not sure since when): https://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2018/10 ... 4141542740

But this is a Firefox thing. What really matters is the video being played. Is it? Even this one?

OK, I tested with a clean ISO and it worked indeed. There's something (a module, rootcopy) messing my system.

Thanks!
