What’s FairPlay Streaming?

FairPlay Streaming (FPS) is Apple’s proprietary DRM system for securing digital video media across their range of products.

Their system works natively with HLS muxed MPEG-TS, but also CMAF (using an fMP4 container) for Common Encryption (CENC) compatibility.

Apple platforms using FPS:

  • iOS
  • iPadOS
  • tvOS
  • Safari browser
  • macOS

Heads-up! Apple requires OTT services to first complete a registration step with them before their DRM system can be used.


Apple currently doesn’t allow FairPlay Streaming to be used with MPEG-DASH content. But no worry! We’ll help you to enable DRM-secured MPEG-DASH on iOS and iPadOS with our powerful PRESTOplay player SDK.
