Huawei WisePlay

What’s WisePlay?

Based on the ChinaDRM standard, WisePlay was developed by Huawei as their proprietary DRM system for media protection across their range of branded devices. It’s used for protecting MPEG-DASH (fMP4), HLS (fMP4 & TS), and CMAF video streams.

Huawei devices supporting WisePlay:

  • Phones and tablets with the Kirin 990 chipset running EMUI 10.1+ or HarmonyOS 1.0+
  • Phones and tablets running EMUI 11.0+ or HarmonyOS 1.0+
  • Smart TVs running HarmonyOS
