Can't play movies from Google Play Store
#1
Hi all,

Since Friday I have my Pine in my hands and tested latest Android and RemixOS releases.  Beside already known limitations and bugs I found it very disappointing not to be able to play any movies from Play Store.  I assume this might be related to reported
authentication issue, but I am not 100% sure. Was anyone able to play movies from Play store so far? How can this be fixed?

Additional note: Movies do not start just black screen - sometimes the timer is running... even downloading movies does not help.

Are you trying to play a movie which you have purchased--- from your library ?

Yes, exactly.

Well, because you yourself suspects an authentication issue, and you yourself asks whether anyone else has played DRM content, the implication is that you are hoping to play restricted content that you are not authorized for... 

... did I misunderstand you?

I am authorized - I have bought these movies, but I can't watch them with Pine64. I can also install apps. So what is the issue with movies?

Well, that is just one of the problems with Digital Restrictions Management !

... sometimes even though you should be able to authenticate, you can't.

Okay, thanks for feedback even it did not solve my problem.

Without looking at any logs makes it hard to troubleshoot. But I agree it's definitely a issue.

There is no Widevine DRM per-installed on Pine A64 board. This situation same to all open source SBC and decision relies on Google. If Google interested to provide Widevine DRM to Pine64 with no cost (hear that the initial charge is 7 figures), we will greatly collaborate.

I was under the impressions they are also strict to hand out the DRM keys due to the platforms security standards and seeing this is a open platform this maybe not even be a option same with Netflix HD/4k content standards. 

Even though stuff like this happens by passing drm on mainstream devices...

It still makes legitimate paying customers not able to use services which imo sucks.... 

Not Pine64 fault at all though. Just with there was a easier way other than not using required services.
