I am having trouble watching DRM protected content after installing this rom.

The app works well on stock rom but after installing this rom, when I tried watching with the app, I get this error:

I did a wipe and re-installed the rom but the issue persists. Please anyone experienced this kind of issue before and what are possible solutions.

Thanks.

After some digging around I found some solution to the problem.
"Inside the /system/lib/ or the /system/vendor/lib/ partition there is a file stored by the name of liboemcrypto.so. The aforementioned apps make use of this file to play the DRM protected contents"

To solve the problem one can use rename/delete the file. This solution is not recommended.
Recommended solution is to use Magisk to install a module named liboemcrypto disabler .
