The key system is selected with the call to generateKeyRequest(). If that keysystem is not supported (by the browser, or by the file) then the call will fail and the app can try a different keysystem.

Note that all three of the app, the file and the browser may support multiple keysystems. Only a keysystem in the intersection of these three sets may be used. There may still be more than one. The app needs to choose its favorite from that set, as there may be commercial implications of the choice for the app. The way we chose to implement that was by allowing the app to attempt generateKeyRequest with different key systems, in preference order, until one succeeded. That seems actable given that the set of keysystems in the intersection I describe above is likely to be very small (coming up with an example where there are 3, say, is already a challenge).

After reading the specification, I have a question on Key System selection.

If media element’s source attribute has a keySystem attribute then we use this as selected keySystem, this is OK.
If no selected KeySystem, the specification says “jump to Key Presence”

The question is :

At “jump to Key Presence” is a else if of “selected key system”, so here we have no idea about key system,
We may need let app or CDM to analyze the initData to find the KeySystem, but I have not seen any text for
Analyzing initData here, or I miss something?

So where we select the Key System if no selected key system in media element?
