Media Data Segment

The encoder should upload the media data segment ( mp4, m4s, m4a) once (per the standard) or at any arbitrary interval that you choose.

The URL format is: http://{hostname}/{format}/{streamID}/{eventname}/{representationID}-{segment number}.{mp4,m4s,m4a}

Example: http://p-ep500002.i.akamaientrypoint.net/dash/500002/test79/500kbps-100.mp4

Segment numbering

  • Segment numbers must not repeat when a live encoder restarts. If segment numbers are derived from current epoch time, they will always increase preventing the overwriting of data in the storage system.
  • A media segment must not have any reference to other fragment or segment.
