Provide Data for a DASH-Player


I try to provide a backend-service for a DASH-based player (

I can’t find any specs how the protocol and the requests/responses for the DASH-Protocol have to look like. I have the content-files ready (manifest, datafiles, etc.) but just returning the manifest-file as stream seems not to work.

Has anybody have any experience in that area and could point me to a direction?



If you haven’t already custom file extensions need to be registered in:

SetConfig(new HostConfig {
    AllowFileExtensions = { "mpd" }

Then does it work when trying to download from a static .mpd file directly?

Yeah, it seemed to be an issue with the ContentTypes etc. I managed to get it working using two endpoints, one for the mpd-file an another for the variable segment-files.
