Widevine license issue

I am trying to play the DASH streams with Widevine protection but unable to play it on Roku player. I tried to play DASH stream without Widevine protection and it plays without any problem.

The video player is throwing an error when trying to play DASH with Widevine.

Error Details:
Error: Protected content license error.
Error code: -6
Error message: buffer:loop:demux: DRM exception: Http error 400:extra:clip_id:0:source:buffer:loop:demux

Also tried the same to play from the Roku Stream Tester tool but it also returns the same result.

Please let me know if there is any issue in Roku related to Widevine or if I need to try some alternate solution for it.
I am stuck in this, any help will be appreciated.

Re: Widevine license issue

Hi @AbhiK 

Have you followed the DRM spec for Widevine and made sure your manifest, DRM parameters, and Content and Video nodes are configured correctly.

If they are configured correctly, then feel free to provide your code so we can take a closer look.
