Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-13840) Support Widevine in Cordova webviews
Date Mon, 29 Jan 2018 04:56:00 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-13840:

It seems that I accepted this PR, although I don't remember why since I didn't think it was
going to work.  That being said, the host application might have to request a permission
to play this media from Android, since the original issue CB-9115 was left open since I thought
Marshmallow was going to blow this up.

It might make sense for a call to the plugins to be here and for the permission to be added
instead, and for the original approach to be followed.  I really don't like having a paper
trail for this issue, and perhaps I had a mind lapse corresponding Jira discussions to GitHub
discussions (I hope this migrates to GitHub issues soon), or there was something that happened
on Slack (which of course is lost due to it being a free plan).

> I'm developing an app that needs to play DRM media.
> On Android Chrome it uses Widevine, but it does not seem to be available in Cordova.

there is a permission request that needs to be handled when creating the webview.
> (As a workaround we use Crosswalk, [which does support Widevine|],
but it is not maintained anymore...)
