Title (EN) ANCHORS FOR LIVE STREAMS
(FR) POINTS D'ANCRAGE POUR FLUX EN DIRECT
Abstract:
(EN) A stream hosting server generates anchors associated with a live stream, each anchor specifying a timestamp of the live stream that represents an opportune moment for a user to join the live stream. When a viewer client device sends a request to join the live stream, the stream hosting server analyzes the anchor list and selects an appropriate anchor. The stream hosting server provides the live stream to the viewer client device beginning at the timestamp specified by the anchor. Thus, the viewer client device can begin displaying the live stream at the opportune moment specified by the anchor. The stream hosting server also creates video on demand content that include a completed live stream as well as anchors associated with the live stream. The viewer client device can display the VOD beginning at different anchors.
(FR) Un serveur d'hébergement de flux génère des points d'ancrage associés à un flux en direct, chaque point d'ancrage spécifiant une estampille temporelle du flux en direct qui représente un moment opportun pour un utilisateur pour rejoindre le flux en direct. Lorsqu'un dispositif client de spectateur envoie une demande pour rejoindre le flux en direct, le serveur d'hébergement de flux analyse la liste de points d'ancrage et sélectionne un point d'ancrage approprié. Le serveur d'hébergement de flux fournit au dispositif client de spectateur le flux en direct, qui commence au niveau de l'estampille temporelle spécifiée par le point d'ancrage. Ainsi, le dispositif client de spectateur peut commencer à afficher le flux en direct au moment opportun spécifié par le point d'ancrage. Le serveur d'hébergement de flux crée également un contenu vidéo à la demande (VOD) qui comprend un flux en direct complété ainsi que des points d'ancrage associés au flux en direct. Le dispositif client de spectateur peut afficher le début de la VOD à différents points d'ancrage.
