Media Extensions (EME)

Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) is a W3C specification that enables protected playback of digital content in web browsers. It provides a standardized way to incorporate digital rights management (DRM) systems into HTML5 video players.

EME allows content providers to encrypt their media files and securely deliver them to users, preventing unauthorized access and piracy. It supports various DRM systems, such as Google Widevine, Microsoft PlayReady, and Apple FairPlay, ensuring compatibility across different platforms and devices.

By implementing EME, web developers can create robust and secure video streaming applications that comply with content protection requirements. EME's integration with HTML5 provides a seamless and consistent user experience, while maintaining the necessary safeguards for copyrighted content.
