Subject: How to download a licensed WM DRM file
Reply to Author | Forward | Print | Individual Message | Show original | Report Abuse
Here is our big problem!
We have found the same feature in the SDK files but what we WANT to do is EXACTLY what you describe as well as what is described below from the link: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/en/wm7/drm.asp#works
We want to DOWNLOAD (and not stream) the files to the end user WITH A license to Play or Delete or Transfer to an SDMI Compliant Portable Device BUT NOT TO TARNSFER TO A PEER PC...
We want to do all of this WITHOUT having to require the user to re-validate a license with an online licensing server again!
It seems like you have figured it out!
Can you help???

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
