Widevine Player SDK
NexPlayer with Widevine DRM Content Protection
Widevine Modular DRM is a royalty free Google technology that permits an unlimited number of clients as well as access to their license servers. Created as a secure alternative to other DRMs, Widevine has indeed become the most popular choice. In fact, over 4.5 billion devices have Widevine embedded. Smart TVs, gaming consoles, browsers, STBs, mobile phones – you name it. As a Certified Widevine Implementation Partner (CWIP), NexPlayer provides the only Widevine player for ALL Android and iOS devices.
By supporting the Common Media Application Format (CMAF), our Widevine player simplifies the encoding, packaging, and storage processes. As a result, you can provide a single streaming format for both Android and iOS. It’s also important to realize that with CBC encryption, other video players only support Widevine in iOS 8.0+ and Android OS 7.0+. Since excluding such a large market segment limits growth, premium video service providers choose NexPlayer’s Widevine player. Widevine is an attractive replacement for Primetime DRM customers, who will be left without content protection as the Adobe platform is deprecated.
NexPlayer has the only Widevine player supporting HLS streaming with Widevine encryption. Moreover, NexPlayer SDK is the only Widevine player supporting HLS with CBC encryption and the Transport Stream (TS) digital container format. Meanwhile, other video players can only provide Widevine with DASH streaming. In other words, without NexPlayer’s Widevine player, companies using HLS must migrate their content to DASH or apply multiple DRMs. The chart below shows additional streaming options provided by NexPlayer:
NexPlayer’s Widevine player allows you to stream your Widevine encrypted HLS and DASH content to all of your end-users, no matter the device. Furthermore, this is a market-proven solution that has already been deployed by a number of our customers on an international scale. Get ready to deliver an outstanding user experience.
