Android DRM Plugin

Android 4.0 brings drm framework to smartphones. I'm interested to write a code that plays video protected by the DRM, but can't find enough information.

1.Are there any tutorials on using the DRM framework? Sample code?

2.The plugin framework claims extensibility, but I can't find neither plugin AI definitions, nor description how to create/add a custom plugin.

My question is whether

1. we need to go for DRM Plugin provider like widevine/merlin or can we implement our own DRM plugin in order to call the android DRM API
2. If we have protected content and license info ,then how can we associate between them. for this can we need DRM Plugin for association ?
3. how can we associate these (protected content and license ) two with Media player in order to run the protected content in media player with license check?

I am little bit confused in working with Android DRM implementation.

I agree. Here's the link:
