    Hi there, I am not adult...I am a kid...I don't understand why this great function is not working. I play a lot the new Minecraft Star Wars DLC. I have a great modified world which I want to play with my friends from school. Most of them are using Minecraft and that DLC. But currently I have to invite them to my Home-Network that we can play together or the same friend has to create the host all the time....my dad will write something also here...he has setup some server for us but the Star Wars DLC is not working there...kind regards from Switzerland

    Hi there, my son told me to post some infos here about the current situation / problem. I am new to minecraft, my son and his friends going crazy at school about this. I am a system engineer and so I have create a docker / itzg/minecraft-bedrock-server. It was easy and it works perfectly. After I have copied the behavior_packs, resource_packs and the world of my son which he have saved in the mcworld - I was not able to run the map / start the server.

    The error (Source) links to that tipic of that community Post here which means "that error usually occurs when attempting to use encrypted marketplace packs on a BDS server."

    Please make it possible to host purchased Material on an own BDS Server. May Kids and Dads would be happy :D

    Any update on this? I should easily be able to log in to my dedicated server and install marketplace purchases that I paid for. I haven't let my sons make any purchases from marketplace since I found out we couldn't put them on our server.

    I know they're doing this to keep people from pirating Marketplace items. I don't blame them for encrypting the files. I would even be happy with a sign-in mechanism that tied the BDS server to my Microsoft account. The only reason I want to have a dedicated server is because Realms Plus is horrible. It has a confusing UI and only one world slot which makes it painful to switch between worlds. My kids want to spend their allowance on the Marketplace but I won't allow it until either Realms Plus or BDS is fixed.

    Trying to setup a BDS for the family, and being unable to use the Natural texture pack I've purchased is a BIG let down for us, or atleast for me.

    Also, I guess I could substitute it with some similar free and downloadable texture pack, but I have no clue on how that would work since we play on a different devices (iPhone/iPad, Xbox, Windows).

    I have a disappointed 9 year old here who just wants to play the Mob Hero's world he bought on his iPhone with his brother and I (dad).  We host a BDS at home for multiplayer across iphones/xbox/pc for the family.  This would be a great addition and probably lead to a few more purchases.

    This needs to happen! I need to be able to use purchased resource packs on my own dedicated server or 3rd party server! I’m ok with realms except for the fact that I can’t increase view distance. It’s like playing in a little bubble. So I do a different server, but now I can’t use my resource pack. Please let us verify somehow that we’ve bought it so we can use it!

    I can't believe this is an issue!  Why can't I use my purchased content on my own server?!!

    Exactly not buying anything more for my 4 kids from the store. Until I can host the dam worlds. Not hard to add a hostname in the server config or email to verify you own said packs. Then the server gives the clients the packs only accessible on said server. I write mods for this game wouldn't be hard to do and just verify the dedicated server owner's email sheeesh!

    This is absurd.  Every time I go to set up something I used to do for years as a Minecraft power user my kids end up disappointed because Bedrock can't do it.

    Now that the Bedrock dedicated server is out of beta this feature needs to happen.

    Let me authenticate my server with my account so our family can play our purchased content on a dedicated server.  Realms is great for most people, but we want the power and flexibility of running our own server within our home.
