The initial implementation will build upon this flexibility to produce a player which matches the DASH264 recommendation of the DASH-IF, namely:
HTTP Adaptive streaming provides for robust streaming, with random access, that adjusts to changes in throughput to avoid rebuffering. Use of HTTP:80 allows for transit across most networks, proxies and firewalls. MPEG-DASH provides an ISO standard ISO/IEC 23009-1 which combines the best features of Apple's HLS, Adobe's HDS and Microsoft Smooth Streaming in to a modern format that is flexible enough to handle mutiple addressing schemes, TS and BMFF support for segment encapsulation, multi-track video and audio, timed metadata and advertising insertion. Rather than require that each browser support DASH directly, the Media Source Extensions expose an interface to the HTML Media element to allow the ad-hoc addition of media segments. This allows client-side script to parse manifests, request segments and apply switching logic while leaving the video decoding and rendering to the browser. The combination is a flexible and powerful platform on which to build cross-platform media players.
This project is organized by the Dash Industry Forum, a non-profit industry association established to catalyze the adoption of MPEG-DASH. Membership includes many large media companies, including Microsoft, Qualcomm, Ericsson, Adobe, Sony, Cisco, Intel and Akamai.
