New Shaka player release from Google devs
The DASH client, which stands for Dynamic Adaptive Streaming HTTP, removes the disadvantages of typical streaming services, such as proprietary protocols or required hardware. In addition, Shaka supports delivery of protected content via the EME APIs to get licenses and do decryption.
