Using the DRMErrorEvent class
Flash Player 10.1 and later, Adobe AIR 1.0 and
Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR dispatch a DRMErrorEvent object
when a NetStream object, trying to play protected content, encounters
a DRM-related error. If user credentials are invalid in an AIR application,
the DRMAuthenticateEvent object repeatedly dispatches until the
user enters valid credentials or the application denies further
attempts. The application is responsible for listening to any other
DRM error events to detect, identify, and handle the DRM-related errors.
Even with valid user credentials, the terms of the content’s
voucher can still prevent a user from viewing the encrypted content.
For example, a user can be denied access for attempting to view
content in an unauthorized application. An unauthorized application
is one that the publisher of the encrypted content has not validated.
In this case, a DRMErrorEvent object is dispatched.
The error events can also be fired if the content is corrupted
or if the application’s version does not match what the voucher
specifies. The application must provide appropriate mechanism for
a complete list of errors, see the
Runtime Error Codes
the ActionScript 3.0 Reference. The DRM-related errors start at
Creating a DRMErrorEvent handler
The following example creates an event handler for the NetStream
object that originated the event. It is called when the NetStream
encounters an error while attempting to play protected content.
Normally, when an application encounters an error, it performs any
number of clean-up tasks. It then informs the user of the error
and provides options for solving the problem.
