Title (EN) VARIABLE BUFFER HANDLING FOR ADAPTIVE BITRATE STREAMING
(FR) GESTION DE TAMPON VARIABLE POUR UNE TRANSMISSION EN CONTINU À DÉBIT BINAIRE ADAPTATIF
Abstract:
(EN) A method is provided to manage playback of adaptive bitrate streaming video using using a stall time delay. The method includes pausing playback of a segment of a variant when a playback point reaches a download point, marking a stall time that marks a point in time in the segment at which playback was paused, determining a remaining playback time, determining a remaining download time, selecting an offset time, determining a wait time, determining a resume time, and waiting to resume playback at least until the download point reaches the resume time.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de gestion de la lecture d'une vidéo transmise en continu à débit binaire adaptatif au moyen d'un retard de temps d'arrêt. Le procédé consiste à : interrompre la lecture d’un segment d’une variante lorsqu’un point de lecture atteint un point de téléchargement ; marquer un temps d’arrêt qui marque un point de temps dans le segment auquel la lecture a été interrompue ; déterminer un temps de lecture restant ; déterminer un temps de téléchargement restant ; sélectionner un temps de décalage ; déterminer un temps d’attente ; déterminer un temps de reprise ; et attendre que le point de téléchargement ait atteint au moins le temps de reprise, avant de reprendre la lecture.
