The original Video Playback License is renamed as the Basic Version License. Impacts as below:
    If you need to use the new version of the SDK (Player SDK mobile version 11.8 and above) and require multi-audio tracks, external subtitles and the newly added premium features, you will need to purchase a Premium Version License for authorization.
