Title (EN) BIT RATE STREAM SWITCHING
(FR) COMMUTATION DE FLUX DE DÉBIT BINAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments for changing bit rates in streaming media are provided. As portions of a streaming media file are downloaded for playback, the size of the portion is compared with an expected size determined prior to initiating playback of streaming AV data. The portion of the media file may be padded such that the size of the portion matches the size specified prior to initiating playback of streaming AV data.
(FR) Les modes de réalisation de la présente invention portent sur la modification des débits binaires dans le multimédia à transmission en continu. Alors que des parties d'un fichier multimédia à transmission en continu ont été chargées pour lecture, la dimension d'une partie est comparée avec une dimension attendue déterminée préalablement à l'initiation de la lecture des données audiovisuelles à transmission en continu. La partie de fichier multimédia peut faire l'objet d'un remplissage de façon à ce que la dimension de ladite partie corresponde à la dimension spécifiée préalablement à l'initiation de la lecture des données audiovisuelles à transmission en continu.
