Title (EN) A METHOD AND A NETWORK FOR DETERMINING USER BEHAVIOR DURING DELIVERY OF VIDEO CONTENT
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET RÉSEAU PERMETTANT DE DÉTERMINER LE COMPORTEMENT D'UN UTILISATEUR AU COURS DE LA FOURNITURE D'UN CONTENU VIDÉO
Abstract:
(EN) For allowing an intelligent and/or resource efficient delivery of video content and/or determining of video content popularity and/or user behavior a method for determining user behavior during delivery of video content is claimed, wherein a user is requesting a delivery of a video content from a provider via a network. The method is characterized in that the provider exploits information transmitted between the user and the provider due to the execution of a trick play function by the user for scheduling the delivery and/or determining video content popularity and/or user behavior. Further, an according network is claimed, preferably for carrying out the above mentioned method.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé permettant de déterminer le comportement d'un utilisateur au cours de la fourniture d'un contenu vidéo afin de permettre une fourniture efficace de ressources et/ou une fourniture intelligente de contenu vidéo et/ou pour déterminer la popularité d'un contenu vidéo et/ou le comportement d'un utilisateur. Selon le procédé, un utilisateur demande la fourniture d'un contenu vidéo à un fournisseur par l'intermédiaire d'un réseau. Le procédé est caractérisé en ce que le fournisseur exploite des informations transmises entre l'utilisateur et le fournisseur en raison de l'exécution d'une fonction de lecture spéciale par l'utilisateur pour planifier la fourniture et/ou pour déterminer la popularité du contenu vidéo et/ou le comportement de l'utilisateur. En outre, un réseau correspondant est revendiqué, de préférence pour mettre en œuvre le procédé mentionné ci-dessus.
