Clarify wording in server section[edit]

It says "Note that no specific support is required from server for DASH content, with the exception of _Live Streaming_" but it's not clear what "Live Streaming" is in this context. There's no part of the HTTP protocol currently defined as "Live Streaming" that I could find. 172.2.203.49 (talk) 16:32, 6 May 2015 (UTC) Ron J

This is a term specific to streaming media rather than to HTTP itself. In terms of MPEG-DASH, live streaming requires on-the-fly generation of segments and re-generation of manifest file just because of the nature of the media (it just happens "right now", it's not pre-recorded). Common web server cannot handle that. Hence the note about exception of live streaming. Perhaps "Live Streaming" should not be started with capital letters though.

DASH in title?[edit]

Should "DASH" be included as part of the page's name? BambelB (talk) 15:54, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps. I've anyway created a redirect from MPEG-DASH The Seventh Taylor (talk) 08:14, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Link to Adaptive bitrate streaming[edit]

Shouldn't this link to: Adaptive bitrate streaming? BambelB (talk) 15:54, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

I agree. Done now. The Seventh Taylor (talk) 08:14, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

Link to MPEG[edit]

Shouldn't the navigation boxes {{Compression Formats}} and {{Compression Methods}} be added here? And where should MPEG-DASH fit into these? The Seventh Taylor (talk) 23:58, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

DASH 264[edit]

I noticed the DASH Industry Forum published the v0.9 standard for 'DASH264' [1]. Is this the same as MPEG-DASH or something different? The Seventh Taylor (talk) 10:50, 17 January 2013 (UTC)

I started reading the standard for 'DASH264' [2] and I found on page 7, line 16 that it mentions, as a separate standard, the 'MPEG-DASH' standard. (MoreOrLezFun (talk) 19:57, 23 January 2013 (UTC))
I think MPEG-DASH standard link need to be updated to [3] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.253.7.190 (talk) 21:38, 4 August 2014 (UTC)

Is DASH patent encumbered?[edit]

It would be good to clarify this information in the article — Bahaltener (talk) 02:47, 18 December 2014 (UTC)

Should HLS be mentioned in Introduction?[edit]

There is no need to mention MPEG-DASH is similar to Apples HLS. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Rushikesh90 (talkcontribs) 04:56, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Also, the introduction states that "MPEG-DASH is the first adaptive bit-rate HTTP-based streaming solution that is an international standard.[1]" (introduced 2012). But HLS has been available as an Internet Engineering Task Force standard since May 2009 (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_Live_Streaming).
