You need to provide three params to Qencode API in order to enable DRM encryption:

  1. key_id: this is the value you provided for "k" param in the URL described on step 1 above. You also can get it from "kid" attribute of cpix:ContentKey or cpix:DRMSystem tags in EZDRM XML response.
    Warning
    Please make sure you remove dash - characters from key_id value when submitting in Qencode API request since it should be in hex format.
  2. key: you need to get pskc:PlainValue xml tag content, decode it from base64 format and convert to hex. Here's a line in python you can use for that:
>>> 'jgE7ws6lbo4GBatA0vEoKQ=='.decode('base64').encode('hex')
'8e013bc2cea56e8e0605ab40d2f12829'

So in our example hex key value will be 8e013bc2cea56e8e0605ab40d2f12829.

  1. pssh:
  • For Playready use cpix:PSSH xml tag content from cpix:DRMSystem tag with systemId="9a04f079-9840-4286-ab92-e65be0885f95".

3Add a 'cenc_drm' object to your Qencode API request JSON

In our example it will be as follows:

"cenc_drm": {
  "key_id" : "297f600f12341234b0602ac13cc42585",
  "key"    : "8e013bc2cea56e8e0605ab40d2f12829",
  "pssh" : "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"
}

You need to add 'cenc_drm' object as a direct child of the format object. Here's the full example:

{
  "query": {
    "source": "https://yourserver.com/video.mp4"
    "format": [
      {
        "output": "advanced_dash",

            "width": 1280,
            "audio_bitrate": 128,
            "keyframe": 25,
            "bitrate": 3100
          }
        ],
        "cenc_drm": {
