Microsoft recently announced the native support for HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) and enhanced support for MPEG DASH in the new EdgeHTML rendering engine in Windows 10. These new HLS and DASH features in IE will dramatically simplify development of Web delivered video applications.

Taking advantage of these new features is as simple as setting a media manifest as the HTMLMediaElement source. New streaming features in Windows 10 do the rest. These include:

  • Automated support for the HLS and DASH adaptive bitrate streaming protocols.
  • Support for MPEG-2 Transport Streams within Media Source Extensions.
