this is rather a unique use case where a customer would like to use their current Akamai HLS to stream Playready files. below is the current workflow:
- Encrypt all files w/MS Playready DRM v2 using ISMV Silverlight and H.264 as the original code using Smooth Streaming IIS Akamai server config to provide to end users.
- All files stored on Akamai NS: laptvsl.upload.akamai.com/121642/LongForm/Playready/
- Encrypted file sample: Inside of the url: laptvsl.upload.akamai.com/121642/LongForm/Playready/890/567/ .. you can see a set of ISMV and ISMA files together w/the Silverlight Manifest files.
- How the customer is streaming today: using the Smooth Streaming IIS Akamai server config; then getting the Playready License from the Playready License Server
Devices: customer did not specify a brand but some form of set-top boxes using Linux for Android
are there any options to generate an encrypted Playready file from MP4 instead of an ISMV file? or perhaps a way to copy/move the ISMV files to a new NS location and duplicate the storage usage?
any thoughts on this use case? thanks!
