.ism extension

My client has an existing Smart TV VOD service using Axinom & UnifiedStreaming.

A small range of devices are refusing to play DASH+Playready streams. Although it's unlikely, I want to rule out that the devices are getting confused by the ".ism/Manifest.mpd" extension and thinking it's a Smooth Stream.

Is there any way to fudge a test stream that removes the ".ism" extension from the stream url?

Re: .ism extension

Hi Marc,

Perhaps you might rather try change the url to .ism/anything.mpd or just .ism/.mpd to rule that out, as manifest on it's own would normally suggest that it's a smooth streaming manifest.

It's perhaps an issue instead with what is in the manifest, could you send us the dash manifest output and version of the software you are using?

You can send it to

Kind regards,
