DRM Text works as an overlay box over the video, protecting your videos from screen-recording. There is a possibility to bypass it by playing the video as a picture in picture. We have fixed this in nearly all browsers, however, it cannot be simply disabled in Firefox, as this browser does not adhere to the W3C specifications.
We have now found a way to disable the picture in picture option for videos with DRM Text in Firefox browser as well.
The Picture in Picture feature is a floating video box able to play on top of other windows, allowing you to interact with different windows while continuing to watch a video in the corner of your screen. This is a browser feature, not an FV Player one, and is different from the FV Player Sticky Video feature where the video only follows you while scrolling on the original page.
You can trigger the Picture in Picture mode by this button:
However, once you would trigger it, the video that pops up would not have the DRM text on it, thus could be easily enlarged and screen captured:
So it was easy to get rid of the DRM text using this technique, but fortunately we fixed that.
Note: Don’t worry, disabled Picture in Picture mode only applies to videos with DRM text. You can still enjoy this feature in Firefox for all the other FV Player videos.
