Title: GENERATING MEDIA CONTENT PLAYLISTS INCLUDING INTERSTITIALS COMBINED WITH MEDIA CONTENT ITEMS
Abstract:
A method includes identifying media content items for a playlist, each media content item has an introductory segment, main segment, and ending segment, determining a length of an ending segment of a first media content item and a length of an introductory segment of a second media content item, selecting an interstitial to be added to the playlist between a main segment of the first media content item and the second media content item. A length of the interstitial exceeds a combined length of the ending segment of the first media content item and the introductory segment of the second media content item. The method also includes adding a spacing between the ending segment and the introductory segment, and inserting the interstitial in the playlist between the main segment of the first media content item and the second media content item based on the spacing.
