Let sites play enhanced protected movies and music

Some sites you visit might offer enhanced protected content, like HD movies or music. This kind of content can play at a higher quality or play offline.

Before you can play this content or play it offline, your Chromebook will ask you if the verification and a site-specific identifier (part of a certificate from Google) can be shared with the site.

Allow verification

You'll be asked to pick from the following options:

  • Allow: This lets your Chromebook share data with the website to make sure that your Chromebook can play the content.
  • Block: This stops the site from checking that your Chromebook works with enhanced playback. You might be able to play the content, but at lower quality.

Note: Google doesn't see any of the information your Chromebook uses to confirm this eligibility. Also, Verified Access (on by default) is required for enhanced playback.

Block or allow verification on sites

To see the sites where you've allowed the identifier to be shared, or to change whether you allow or block sharing, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Chromebook.
  2. Click the status area, where your account picture appears.
  3. Click Settings Settings and then Show advanced settings.
  4. In the "Privacy" section, click Content settings.
  5. In the "Protected content" section, check the box to allow the identifiers to be shared.
  6. To allow or block sharing with a specific site, click Manage exceptions.
    • Optional: To remove an exception, click X.
  7. Click Done.
