HLS + Widevine DRM Playback

Hello - We are trying to run HLS with Widevine DRM on Roku devices and all of the streams are failing without requesting the licenses. The Roku documentation states that Widevine is supported via HLS, however we've tried using both CENC and CBCS encryption schemes and neither plays back in the stream tester or our demo applications.

Additionally of the available test content via HLS.JS, Shaka Player, and Shaka Packager fail to playback.

Are there any clarification on what the encryption requirements are for this platform? Any test content available?

I assume you've read this?

It's outside of my area of expertise, but that's what came up when I searched.

Re: HLS + Widevine DRM Playback

Following stream I tried in my Roku player (dev mode). It failed immediately after start. However, this is a test stream I got from the net and it works fine in Samsung TV. Can someone, explain?
