    Default DRM on Chromecast

    Does any of you know how DRM works on Chromecast?
    Is it integrated on the receiver app?

    I think DRM is a mute point. The CC was designed to get content from the provider like netflix and google. Because it is streaming directly from the provider no need for it. Now as far as local content i would expect it to work with DRM free content. Content we have on our local device should be personal videos and not DRM'd content.

    I know that isn't exactly true though, but I suspect that is the concept behind it.

    I'd guess it's handled by the transmitting app, I've definitely seen a "this video cannot be cast to your TV" pop-up in YouTube. Also,

    It's a moot point, not a mute point. Sorry, it's a pet peeve, no offence intended.

    Are you trying to say that Netflix is not encrypting the content? I dont think so....

    I never said it wasn't encrypted. What I said is that it is a moot point because content that would need DRM should be coming from the content provider like Netflix and Vudo to the CC and not from your local device. DRM isn't really for them, it is for us end users. They probably have their own proprietary encryption and video format that decodes the stream. But that isn't DRM, that is just protecting data they distribute.

    Exactly, it's quite possible the stream is encrypted, but any DRM check would be done by your phone or tablet before the stream URL is sent to chromecast.

    You'll be an American I take it. Offence is the British English spelling. Although both are considered correct, we created the language, ours is right! bloody colonials lol

    I suspected as much! American is always best. Ergo the correct spelling is 'offense' :P.

    If that were the case we are all speaking and spelling everything wrong, just read the original Beowulf:

    1-21
    HWÆT, WE GAR-DEna in geardagum,
    þeodcyninga þrym gefrunon,
    hu ða æþelingas ellen fremedon!
    oft Scyld Scefing sceaþena þreatum,
    monegum mægþum meodosetla ofteah,
    egsode eorlas, syððanærest wearð
    feasceaft funden; he þæs frofre gebad,
    weox under wolcnum weorðmyndum þah,
    oð þæt him æghwylc ymbsittendra
    ofer hronrade hyran scolde,
    gomban gyldan; þæt wæs god cyning!
    Ðæm eafera wæs æfter cenned
    geong in geardum, þone God sende
    folce to frofre; fyrenðearfe ongeat,
    þe hie ær drugon aldorlease
    lange hwile; him þæs Liffrea,
    wuldres Wealdend woroldare forgeaf,
    Beowulf wæs breme --- blæd wide sprang---
    Scyldes eafera Scedelandum in.
    Swa sceal geong guma gode gewyrcean,
    fromum feohgiftumon fæder bearme,

    22-46
    þæt hine on ylde eft gewunigen
    wilgesiþas, þonne wig cume,
    leode gelæsten; lofdædum sceal
    in mægþa gehwære man geþeon.
    Him ða Scyld gewat to gescæphwile
    felahror feran on Frean wære;
    hi hyne þa ætbæron to brimes faroðe,
    swæse gesiþas, swa he selfa bæd,
    þendenwordum weold wine Scyldinga---
    leof landfruma lange ahte.
    Þær æt hyðe stod hringedstefna
    isig ond utfus, æþelingesfær;
    aledon þa leofne þeoden,
    beaga bryttan on bearm scipes,
    mærne be mæste. Þær wæs madma fela
    of feorwegum frætwa gelæded;

    Nalæs hi hine læssan lacum teodan,
