LicenseAcquirer.SetLicenseResponse Method

Sets the license response by passing the SOAP body from the HTTP response to the license challenge.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Protected Sub SetLicenseResponse ( _
    licenseResponse As Stream _
)
protected void SetLicenseResponse(
    Stream licenseResponse
)

Parameters

  • licenseResponse
    Type: System.IO.Stream
    The SOAP body from the HTTP response to the license challenge. The SOAP body is passed in as a stream and contains the entire SOAP response.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

The licenseResponse is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

InvalidOperationException

The specified licenseResponse is invalid.

Remarks

If the LicenseAcquirer is created on demand (from the media element) and if this method is called with nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the MediaElement transitions from the AcquiringLicense state to the error state and raises the MediaFailed event corresponding to that.

If the LicenseAcquirer is created on demand (from the media element) and if you are handling license acquisition on your own by overriding OnAcquireLicense, you are expected to call this method before the MediaElement leaves the AcquiringLicense state.

Examples

The LicenseAcquirer class is used by the MediaElement to handle acquiring licenses for DRM encrypted content from a PlayReady License Server. You can subclass the LicenseAcquirer class and add custom logic like adding your own custom authentication scheme to the license request.

The following example shows how to override the LicenseAcquirer class (named "ManualLicenseAcquirer") and have a MediaElement use it to acquire the license.
