The CONNECT Player SDK for Apple (FPS) enables you to develop a secure player that can playback Apple FairPlay Streaming (FPS) encrypted content. It is available in two versions, iOS and tvOS, and supports HD and 4K playback. Media playback is enabled using the Swift class OTVAVPlayer, which inherits all properties and functions from AVPlayer, and extends AVPlayer to simplify FPS integration and support additional functionality.

  • Commercial licence - given to you once you licence the product.  It only works with the domain name provided with the licence.
