Hi ,

I am playing some encrypted videos in CEF but it is not working. But when tried with same version of chrome it's work fine.

Let me show you some screen shots.

This is screen shot of working chrome browser.Chrome Image.jpg And this is screen shot of CEF which is not wotking. You can check that both URL are same.


Extra things that tried by me.

When I play unencrypted video(webm) file it played fine on both without any issue.

To play encrypted files I am using video js and it's JS plugin.

I Googled and tried every thing that i can do, but these things are not helped me. I am stuck in the project and all the things are dependent on this, please help me to get out from this issue.

    For encryption I am using FFMPEG tool and I attached a .zip file in which all the sample files are available and if you want to run encrypted files in Google Chrome then just update the 'SampleVideo-vp8.m3u8' file's URL section, then it works fine :)

    Does the problem reproduce in currently supported versions of CEF? See https://bitbucket.org/chromiumembedded/cef/wiki/BranchesAndBuilding#markdown-header-current-release-branches-supported

    Are there any error messages output to debug.log or the JavaScript console?

    If the problem reproduces with currently supported versions of CEF then please upload your video files and all necessary HTML/JS files to a web server so that they can be loaded for testing purposes.

    It's possible that the HLS m3u8 functionality you're using is only supported by Chromium when built with proprietary codecs support enabled. See https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=180632#c9
