Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PRESENTING STREAMING MEDIA CONTENT
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE PRESENTATION DE CONTENU MULTIMEDIA EN DIFFUSION CONTINUE
Abstract
(EN)
One embodiment provides a system and a method for presenting streaming media content delivered through a peer-to-peer overlay network. During operation, a data-transfer mechanism sends requests to a plurality of peer nodes to receive data for streaming media content. The system stores received data for the streaming media content into a buffer. Next a server local to a media presentation mechanism serves the buffered data to a media presentation mechanism. The server controls the data serving in response to a signal received from the media-presentation mechanism.

Dans un mode de réalisation, la présente invention concerne un système et un procédé de présentation de contenu multimédia en diffusion continue par le biais d'un réseau superposé poste à poste. En cours de fonctionnement, un mécanisme de transfert de donnée envoie des demandes à une pluralité de noeuds de poste pour recevoir des données de contenu multimédia en diffusion continue. Le système stocke dans une mémoire tampon des données reçues pour le contenu multimédia en diffusion continue. Ensuite, un serveur local à un mécanisme de présentation multimédia sert les données mises en mémoire tampon à un mécanisme de présentation multimédia. Le serveur contrôle le service des données en réponse à un signal reçu à partir du mécanisme de présentation multimédia.
