Widevine Player SDK
The only player supporting Widevine on both iOS and Android devices
- As a Certified Widevine Implementation Partner (CWIP), NexPlayer provides the only player for ALL Android and iOS devices supporting Widevine encryption. NexPlayer can support Widevine even on devices where it is not natively supported in the platform.
- Without NexPlayer’s Widevine player, providers that use HLS must migrate their streaming architecture to MPEG-DASH or apply multiple DRM technologies to securely stream their content.
- 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. This is a market-proven solution that has already been deployed by many of our customers around the globe.
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 become the most popular choice for delivering DRM-protected video content.
In fact, over 4.5 billion devices have embedded Widevine, including Smart TVs, gaming consoles, web browsers, set-top-boxes (STBs), mobile phones and tablets.
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.
