What ABR content formats and what DRMs are supported?

1 post in this topic

Hi,

 

Just trying to get a clear picture on what Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) content formats are supported and what DRMs are supported for each content format on LG Webos smart TVs.

I am wondering if the  information on  http://webostv.developer.lge.com/discover/specifications/webos-tv-platform/supported-media-formats/  is up to date, as if so then LG is so far behind the market...

I'll list my questions:

1. the page says that HLS is supported, but only with Verimatrix. is this true?

2. the page does not specify that HSS or DASH are supported. is this true?

3. the page says that WV is supported only its "classic" version and not the new "modular" version. is this true?

4. the page says that PlayReady is supported, but there is no mentioning of which content format it can be supported with. Does someone know the answer for this?

 

Thanks for any info on this.

M.
