Version history / Release notes / Changelog / What's New


New commandline argument --auth-bearer to specify the token to be used for Bearer authentication
of network requests to retrieve the manifest and the media segments. This is the authentication
method specified in RFC 6750, originally designed for OAuth 2.0, but also used in other settings
such as JSON Web Tokens (JWT).

Enable support for MPEG-4 Part 17 (Timed Text) subtitles (tx3g codec). They will be converted to
SRT format if the MP4Box commandline application is installed.

When printing the available media streams, print Role and Label information if they are
specified on an AdaptationSet element.

Fix handling of MPD.Location field (thanks to @nissy34).

All features

DASH (dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP), also called MPEG-DASH, is a technology used for media streaming over the web, commonly used for video on demand (VOD) services. The Media Presentation Description (MPD) is a description of the resources (manifest or “playlist”) forming a streaming service, that a DASH client uses to determine which assets to request in order to perform adaptive streaming of the content. DASH MPD manifests can be used with content encoded in different formats and containers, including H264/MP4, HEVC/MP4 and VP9/WebM. There is a good explanation of adaptive bitrate video streaming at

This commandline application allows you to download content (audio or video) described by an MPD manifest. This involves selecting the alternative with the most appropriate encoding (in terms of bitrate, codec, etc.), fetching segments of the content using HTTP or HTTPS requests and muxing audio and video segments together. There is also some preliminary support for downloading subtitles (mostly WebVTT, TTML and SMIL formats, with some support for wvtt format).

This application builds on the dash-mpd crate.
