The purpose of the manifest file is to enable the origin server and eventually the CDN, to interpret the incoming live stream. It also assigns appropriate semantic meaning to the tracks in the stream, creates necessary parameters to decode the video/audio data, and makes appropriate heuristic decisions. This XML Smooth manifest file ultimately is the asset that the media player client connects to. The routing infrastructure plays a key role in selecting the optimal edge server to deliver the live stream to end-users.
