Apparently PlayReady DRM does not work in Edge Chromium on many websites but in Legacy Edge. When I visit https://bitmovin.com/demos/drm video playback fails. I cannot play Amazon Prime Video streams but Netflix streams just fine. Do web developers failed to implement Multi DRM support or does Edge Chromium has a bug? Why only Netflix and Disney Plus support Edge Chromium but Amazon Prime Video not?

@Girofox Check your flags. I have the default status of the flags for DRM and it is enabled on my Canary installations.

Everything is default but it does not play any video.
