I got this following error while playing a video file (.m3u8 format ) in asp.net mvc application.
1.Open the web.config file in the ASP.NET MVC application.
2.Add the following configuration inside the <system.webServer> element:
MIME Type is used for HTTP Live Streaming HLS playlist file which is used for streaming video content.By adding the configuration in web.config file for .m3u8 extenstion which will identify the HLS
playlist file and handle it appropriately.
<system.webServer> <staticContent> <mimeMap fileExtension=".m3u8" mimeType="application/x-mpegURL"/> </staticContent> </system.webServer>
