I'm running a few quick tests to see if any DRM system works on a VM. Notably, most DRM systems (haven't found one yet), don't work on a virtual device:
- iPhone Simulator on OSX (FairPlay)
- Windows Phone Simulator
- Android Simulator
- Virtual machine on Mac/Pc base hardware (Parallels, Virtual Box, VMWare?)
Is there any combination of base hardware (Mac/PC), base OS, and Virtualized OS that allows a given DRM system to work?
My testing of FairPlay, PlayFair, Widevine/Chrome on this website resulted in no success unless on the actual base OS.
