In this article I will explain with an example, how to play (Live Stream) Video Files (MP4) using HTML5 Video Player in ASP.Net MVC Razor.
 
 
Video Location
The Video is stored in a folder within the Website project.
Play (Live Stream) Video Files (MP4) using HTML5 Video Player in ASP.Net MVC
 
 
Controller
The Controller consists of an Action method named Index. Inside this Action method, simply the View is returned.
public class HomeController : Controller
{
    // GET: Home
    public ActionResult Index()
    {
        return View();
    }
}
 
 
View
The View consists of an HTML5 Video Player element.
The HTML5 Video Player element has the following properties:
1. id – ID of the Video Player.
2. src – URL of the Video.
3. width – Width of the Video Player.
4. height – Height of the Video Player.
5. controls – If set True, it display the control Buttons such as Play Pause, Volume, etc. in the HTML5 Video Player.
6. loop – If set True, it will keep playing video i.e. once the video is completed, automatically it will start again.
The @Url.Content function is used to convert the Relative URL to Absolute URL as the HTML5 Video Player requires Absolute URL.
@{
    Layout = null;
}
 
<!DOCTYPE html>
 
<html>
<head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width"/>
    <title>Index</title>
</head>
<body>
    <video id="VideoPlayer" src="@Url.Content("~/Videos/Butterfly.mp4")" controls="true"
        width="400" height="350" loop="true"/>
</body>
</html>
