Widevine Asset ID

If Widevine DRM protection is enabled in the processing profile, how can we get a “Widevine Asset ID” for a transcoded asset?

CAUSE

Generally speaking, users can get asset information by using Backlot API like /v2/assets/(embedcode) . Note that the “Widevine Asset ID” is not included in this result.

Note: “Widevine Asset ID” is a unique ID which is required by Widevine DRM process. A transcoding system should generate / assign it to each asset.  The “Widevine Asset ID” may be required when Widevine stream would be used as a remote asset.

 

HOW TO RESOLVE

Users can get “Widevine Asset ID” from “/v2/assets/(embedcode)/drm_attributes/widevine” Backlot API. This ID is determined by Ooyala Transcode System (OTS) during the initial transcoding. This ID will not be changed, even if the asset was reprocessed.

 

API Sample:

GET /v2/assets/(embed_code)/drm_attributes/widevine

->

{

"id": "25447739",

"drm_type": "widevine"

}
