Abstract
(EN)
In one embodiment, a method includes obtaining a link to a video program; obtaining metadata that relates to the program and that defines, for a specified time point in the program, annotations to be invoked at the specified time point; wherein the annotations comprise: a graphic image; one or more filters, each of the filters comprising a key and one or more matching values; and optionally a reference to a video segment, an electronic document, program code statements, or a programmatic call; during playing the video, detecting that the video program is playing at the specified time point; in response to the detecting: for each particular annotation for the specified time point, retrieving a current value for the key, and causing to display the graphic image associated with that particular annotation only when the current value of the key matches one of the matching values of one of the filters.

Conformément à un mode de réalisation, l'invention porte sur un procédé qui consiste à obtenir un lien vers un programme vidéo ; à obtenir des métadonnées qui se rapportent au programme et qui définissent, pour un instant spécifié dans le programme, des annotations à invoquer à l'instant spécifié ; les annotations comprenant : une image graphique ; un ou plusieurs filtres, chacun des filtres comprenant une clé et une ou plusieurs valeurs de mise en correspondance ; et, de manière facultative, une référence à un segment vidéo, à un document électronique, à des instructions de code de programme, ou à un appel programmatique ; durant la lecture de la vidéo, à détecter que le programme vidéo est lu à l'instant spécifié ; en réponse à la détection : pour chaque annotation particulière pour l'instant spécifié, à extraire une valeur courante pour la clé, et à provoquer l'affichage de l'image graphique associée à cette annotation particulière seulement lorsque la valeur courante de la clé correspond à l'une des valeurs de mise en correspondance de l'un des filtres.
