IWMDRMEditor interface

[IWMDRMEditor is available for use in the operating systems specified in the Requirements section. It may be altered or unavailable in subsequent versions. Instead, use Microsoft PlayReady. ]

The IWMDRMEditor interface is exposed on the metadata editor object. It can be obtained by calling QueryInterface from IWMMetadataEditor. The IWMDRMEditor interface enables applications to examine the DRM attributes of an ASF file, for example to query the number of times a file is allowed to be played, without having the wmstubdrm.lib static library. The IWMDRMReader interface contains a similar method, but the application must be linked to a valid wmstubdrm.lib library in order to use that interface.


The IWMDRMEditor interface has these methods.

Method Description
IWMDRMEditor::GetDRMProperty The GetDRMProperty method retrieves the specified DRM property.
