A HDCP error code may appear when trying to play copyrighted material from another device, such as a DVD player or Blu-ray player, into a Zoom meeting.
What is HDCP?
HDCP is a digital content protection technology that helps prevent copying of digital audiovisual content. Unlicensed devices cannot play or record HDCP-encrypted content.
Does Zoom support HDCP
Currently, Zoom does not support the playback of HDCP content. Capturing HDCP content such as this may be regarded as a violation of copyright.
Can I play HDCP material locally?
In HDCP, the connection between content and playback devices is secured through a secure HDMI connection, which means the receiver, such as a display with HDMI input, must also support HDCP. The use of apps such as Netflix and YouTube prevents streaming content from any device that cannot be directly connected from that device to a HDCP-compliant display through HDMI.
How do I know if my devices support HDCP?
Try it out. To determine if it is compliant, check the user manual or product listing on the manufacturer’s website.
What else can I try?
HDCP-enabled devices sometimes encounter “handshake” or negotiation problems. Try rebooting the display or source device. Check the cable for damage or reconnect the HDMI cable.
