Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR IMPROVING OPERATIONS ON A MEDIA SERVER
Abstract:
A system and method by which a media server's operations may be improved. A new action parameter is provided. The action parameter, which may be used, for example, in browse and CreateObject operations, may be used by a device as a "hint" to inform a server about a forthcoming action. This action parameter allows the media server to optimize its operations, for example by increasing the priority of server processes, scheduling maintenance operations so that they occur at a later time, etc. Information related to the action may be provided by a control point which orders multimedia actions to occur in a home network.
