Just for clarity, it's possible to record DRM right now. The issue is playing it back. So in theory anyone could take a DRM recording, move it all over the place, and just go crazy with it, so long as they had a way to unlock it.rrussis82 wrote: ↑Mon Jan 14, 2019 5:24 pmIt kind of makes sense, they will have their own hardware that you may not be able to copy or move off it, only delete or record. Makes a perfect environment for recording DRM using their own software on protected content. It's not the perfect solution we would be hoping for, but if it's the only way i'm sure many would embrace it.
The bigger issue with SMB isn't DRMed file lock down. It's that SMB is a nightmare in a can, uses different protocols depending on the platform trying to access the server, and is generally the worst. If you think development is slow now, it would virtually be moving in reverse if we also had to support SMB on a server.
We have looked at other ways to access and alter those files, like possibly an ftp server or simply uploading and downloading via http. But as said before, we're still a bit early on the software side to be able to say how that is going to work.
