I'm buying songs from an online store. The files are protected with OMA DRM 1.0 Forward Lock. The downloaded files are .dm
When attempting to open them, a toast appears saying "Unable to open file".
The files can be seen only on the browser's downloads section. If you try to look for them in the File Manager or through a computer, they don't exist in any folder (Downloads, Music, protected_media, etc.).
Is there any workaround for this?
Should I file a bug?

Probably the best way to fix this is to download to a PC, strip the file of it's DRM, then copy to Playbook.
You won't be able to play the DRM protected content if there is no player on playbook for that DRM type.

I didn't explain myself right... and I can't edit the first post.
My client wants to be able to play DRM files on BB10, but they don't seem to work.
Will it work at a later software version? BB10 launch?
In the following link it says BB10 supports OMA DRM 1.0 Forward Lock
So maybe it'll be available at a later version.

Watch this video at around 42 minutes talking about BB10's DRM solutions.
If the website said it supports Forward Lock now, it probably is. You just have to find the correct RIM security team to talk to.

This is an old old old article on legacy blackberry os with forward lock.

Thanks for your answers. I did read the blog entry and watch the video.
Well, it seems BB10 supports OMA DRM but only on ringtones, not songs :/
As far as I know, there are no APIs for programming apps that run in background, but is there any way to listen to the browser's downloads and manipulate the data while an app is open?
Also, I'm testing with a WebView inside an app, but I cannot seem to get/download data from links...

You definitely can't touch or look at what the browser app is doing. Although, it would be quite trivial to monitor the shared/downloads directory for files ending in .dm.
Then you could strip off the DRM of the file and rename it to its proper extension for the user.
The user wouldn't be able to see the newly created file unless they looked somewhere. Maybe the app that stripped it in the first place could play the media?
