Many content providers are using manifest manipulation to personalize the video experience for each viewer. When a stream is requested, video and audio segments are accompanied by a manifest file that acts as a playlist and determines the playback order.

In the case of live video, a new manifest is delivered with each segment of video requested, allowing adjustments to be applied dynamically as viewing conditions change.
