Encrypting Live HDS with Flash Access V2

In order to encrypt Live HDS content with Flash Access V2, it looks like I need to reconfigure 4 files:


  1. rootinstall/applications/livepkgr/Application.xml
  2. rootinstall/applications/livepkgr/events/_definst_/liveevent/Event.xml
  3. rootinstall/applications/livepkgr/events/_definst_/liveevent/Manifest. xml
  4. rootinstall/webroot/liveevent.f4m


Here are my configuration files:











              <ContentProtection enabled="allow">
















              <ContentProtection enabled="false">







            <LicenseServerCertFile>(license_server_cert_file.der)</LicenseServerC ertFile>

            <PackagerCredentialFile>(packager_credential_file.pfx)</PackagerCrede ntialFile>









<manifest xmlns="">

  <media streamId="livestreamJDLEW" bitrate="100"/>




<manifest xmlns="">


  <dvrInfo windowDuration="3600"></dvrInfo>

  <media href="livestreamJDLEW.f4m" bitrate="100"/>



In (2), when I change the <ContentProtection> enabled tag to "true", the folder rootinstall/applications/livepkgr/streams/_definst_/livestreamJDLEW/ only receives the .control file -- the .bootstrap, .meta, .f4f, and .f4x files are no longer being generated -- and, therefore, no video is created.


How can I get my Live HDS streams encrypted with FAXS v2 working?


Thanks in advance!

    Could you tell me what version of FMS you're using? Also, could you check your application logs and core logs under <root_install>/logs.

    For multiple streams at event level, you need to have multiple enteries in the manifest.xml under livepkgr/events/_definst_/liveevent/Manifest. xml as so :

    <manifest xmlns="">

      <media streamId="livestream1" bitrate="100" />

      <media streamId="livestream2" bitrate="200" />

      <media streamId="livestream3" bitrate="350" />


    For this manifest you'll typically be publishing the stream as livestream%i?adbe-live-even=liveevent via FMLE.

    For playback you need to use URL as : http://<server-ip>/hds-live/livepkgr/_definst_/liveevent.f4m


    Hope this helps.

    When you have the encryption configs at event level all the streams associated with that event will be encrypted. To verify, you can check the streams being created : livepkgr/streams/_definst_/livestrea1(2 or 3)/. There should be a .drmmeta file created.


    You can set any content ID you want. Setting the stream name as content Id will not encrypt only that stream. Whatever content Id you choose to set will be applied to all the streams associated with that event.
