Default Re: Linux + HDCP

Maybe you are right and I am not here to support or defend HDCP. I am comming from a more developer point of view. Assume the problem is solve is play to a HDCP device. Now

1) How does Vista do it? My understanding is that MS has licensed HDCP and so given that your video card supports HDCP (NVIDIA cards do) and their is support for in the driver (I think NVIDIA Windows drivers do) you can enable HDCP.

2) How can it be done on linux? The same hardware is available but nothing licensing HDCP (no body like MS here). Is there support on the driver? If someone (software maker) has HDCP license, can he program the NVIDIA card to enable HDCP?
