Thanks for your reply.

I guess you misunderstand my question.
My question is when encrypted block is detected by media element during resource fetch algorithm ,
how to choose the key system.

If an encrypted block is detected, and multiple keysystems are supported by the file, and a keysystem has not been selected by the application, then the needkey event is fired. The needkey event in this case cannot specify a keysystem because multiple are still possible. If only one keysystem is possible at this point (because the file only supports one, for example), then this could be signaled in needkey.

I haven't had a chance to review the specification text - perhaps it does not say clearly what I have said above.

Usually, it is the call to generateKeyRequest that selects the keysystem. The application does need to specify a keysystem in that call, otherwise it is an error as you point out. The media element may not be able to decrypt the content until addKey is called with the key/license information. But I am not sure what the problem is that you see with this ?

From specification,

In step 6 of section 5.1 encrypted block encounted
It is said if the media element has a selected key system, then use it,
If not, jump to key presence, there is no key system selection text  in step 9 Key Presence.
Step 9 only mentioned 3 choices: 1 key is available, 2 fire needKey event with “keySystem”,3 abort resource fetch procedure

What’s more, I think before the generateKeyRequest(KeySystem, initData) is called, the KeySystem is already
Selected, and the specification mentioned if KeySystem is null, it will throw a SYNTAX_ERROR.

主题: Re: [EME] specification question: key Sytem selection

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?
