Microsoft has now added experimental logos to Microsoft Edge based on Chromium to support WideVine and PlayReady, including4KNetflix streams. Other Chromium-based browsers, such as Google Chrome, still cannot play protected or DRM media streams such as UltraHD Netflix.
Two logos "PlayReady DRM for"Windows"10" and "PlayReady Experimental HEVC Decoding" are currently unique to Microsoft Edge. However, as Microsoft adds UltraHD DRM protection stream support to Chromium, this will change very quickly.
Under a new commitment, Microsoft also plans to add 4K streaming support to protected and DRM media in Chromium for Windows 10. Microsoft noted that it plans to use the Media Foundation-based Protected Media Path (PMP) architecture to play 4K protected / DRM media content on Windows. Microsoft started developing this improvement for Chromium on August 31, but it has not yet taken effect.
