Streaming DRM 4k Media


Is there any solution for streaming HD DRM'd media from Amazon/Google under Linux? I've just tried vmware with win10 and while I can correctly play at full resolution the video performance seems laggy (even with graphics acceleration), maybe that's only expected for a VM?

Just curious if there is a (legal) way of solving this without having native Windows/Apple devices...

Thanks smile

Re: Streaming DRM 4k Media

In order to play that kind of content it seems a fully compliant hdcp 2.2 stack is needed.

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.
