There are multiple operations that may need to be performed before playback can occur for a given content header. For example, individualization, domain join, and license acquisition may all be required (and multiple attempts of each could occur). If licenses are already present, the content resolver will try to enable the first license that is found rather than making a deterministic choice or allowing the app to choose.



Proactively initiates the service request chain for a given content header.
