MPEG DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP) is an implementation of an adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming technology designed by MPEG. It uses a single XML-based manifest file usually delivered with the .mpd file extension. It is commonly used with fMP4 media fragments. It is often used when delivering DRM'd content since it is easy to interchange with CENC encrypted media.
