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 the all properties and functions from
AVPlayer, and extends
AVPlayer to simplify FPS integration and support additional functionality.
