I have a Movie_Manifest.mpd file that is made up of 5 .webm video streams (consisting of different sizes and bps) and 1 audio file. The question I'm asking is: can it be played through a "simple" HTML5 video tag?
I've tried this and it doesn't work:
<video controls> <source src = "Movie_Manifest.mpd"/> </video>
Well it works, but it chooses the lowest quality video stream and the output is laggy. I would like it to have adaptive bit streaming. You might think, "Do you think your bandwidth is just that slow?" Yeah, my bandwidth is slow, but not that slow. And besides, when I run that low quality webm file on its own, it runs smooth.
So to reiterate:
1) Can I use a "simple" HTML5 video tag for adaptive bit streaming?
Thanks and happy streaming
