Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUSES FOR RESUMING PAUSED MEDIA
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREILS POUR REPRENDRE UN CONTENU MULTIMÉDIA MIS EN PAUSE
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatuses in a user equipment (300) and a control server (302) for enabling resumption of a paused media information stream sent in a live broadcast (3:1) of a TV program. When a user has paused (3:2) the broadcasted media information stream, the user equipment sends to the control server a request message (3:4) comprising an indicator of the time of pause. The control server then calculates (3:5) an offset value indicating a pause point in the media information stream where the pause occurred, based on the received indicator. The control server sends an answer message (3:6) comprising a file location address of a recorded version of the TV program and the calculated offset value, to the user equipment. The user equipment can then resume the media information stream (3:7, 3:8) from said pause point based on the received file location address and offset value. Thereby, any gap or jump in the resumed TV program due to inaccurate offset can be minimised or avoided.
(FR) L'invention porte sur des procédés et des appareils dans un équipement utilisateur (300) et un serveur de commande (302) pour permettre la reprise d'un flux d'informations multimédia mis en pause envoyé dans une radiodiffusion en direct (3:1) d'un programme de télévision. Lorsqu'un utilisateur a mis en pause (3:2) le flux d'informations multimédia radiodiffusé, l'équipement utilisateur envoie au serveur de commande un message de requête (3:4) comprenant un indicateur de l'instant de pause. Le serveur de commande calcule ensuite (3:5) une valeur de décalage indiquant un point de pause dans le flux d'informations multimédia au niveau duquel la pause s'est produite, sur la base de l'indicateur reçu. Le serveur de commande envoie un message de réponse (3:6) comprenant une adresse d'emplacement de fichier d'une version enregistrée du programme de télévision et la valeur de décalage calculée, à l'équipement utilisateur. L'équipement utilisateur peut ensuite reprendre le flux d'informations multimédia (3:7, 3:8) à partir dudit point de pause sur la base de l'adresse d'emplacement de fichier et de la valeur de décalage reçues. Il est ainsi possible de réduire au minimum ou d'éviter toute discontinuité ou saut dans le programme de télévision repris en raison d'un décalage imprécis.
