To date, streaming video providers providers have had to support two container formats in order reach many device types, including Android and iOS devices, with protected video content.

In June, a new development being worked on by Apple, Adobe, and many others in MPEG (the Moving Picture Experts Group) is bringing streaming video providers one step closer to a single streaming format with DRM. The development is a container format called Common Media Application Format (CMAF).

CMAF allows streaming video providers to move from supporting two container formats, fragmented MP4 (fMP4) and transport stream (TS), to supporting one container format, CMAF. This drives big savings in storage and delivery costs.
