Steps to reproduce

An EME application developer must write special code for Edge/IE11 to make PlayReady license requests. On other platforms, the request generated by generateRequest() is delivered directly to the license server. Microsoft’s generateRequest() is not interoperable with anyone else’s.

On Edge/IE11, we must interpret the request as UTF-16-LE text, parse as XML, extract the Challenge field to use as the request body, and extract HttpHeader fields to set additional HTTP headers on the request.
