Title: CONTENT DELIVERY APPARATUS AND CONTENT DELIVERY METHOD
Abstract:
The present invention addresses the problem of an inappropriate resume playback position caused by uniformly determining the same resume playback position. For example, if the resume playback position is determined for the time of wide area network connection in which a large buffer size is set, the resume playback position at the time of home network connection would result in a position causing an overlapping playback; or if the resume playback position is determined for the time of home network connection in which a small buffer size is set, the resume playback position at the time of wide area network connection would result in a position causing a partial playback failure. According to the present invention, the resume playback position is determined on the basis of the connection scheme of a network to which a client terminal is connected, so that it becomes possible to appropriately control the resume playback position in accordance with the buffer size of the client terminal in the connection scheme of the network.
