Title (EN) GROUPING IN A SYSTEM WITH MULTIPLE MEDIA PLAYBACK PROTOCOLS
(FR) REGROUPEMENT DANS UN SYSTÈME AVEC DE MULTIPLES PROTOCOLES DE LECTURE MULTIMÉDIA
Abstract:
(EN) A network media system forms a group comprising a first networked device and a second networked device using a first media playback protocol. The network media system includes the first networked device and the second networked device. The network media system determines a group coordinator for the group using the first media playback protocol. The network media system transmits, to a media source device, a group network identity using a second media playback protocol. The media source device and one of the first networked device and the second networked device are configured to use the first media playback protocol and the second media playback protocol. The first media playback protocol and the second media playback protocol are incompatible.
(FR) Selon l'invention, un système multimédia de réseau forme un groupe comprenant un premier dispositif en réseau et un second dispositif en réseau à l'aide d'un premier protocole de lecture multimédia. Le système multimédia de réseau comprend le premier dispositif en réseau et le second dispositif en réseau. Le système multimédia de réseau détermine un coordinateur pour le groupe à l'aide du premier protocole de lecture multimédia. Le système multimédia de réseau transmet, à un dispositif source multimédia, une identité de réseau de groupe à l'aide d'un second protocole de lecture multimédia. Le dispositif source multimédia et le premier dispositif en réseau ou le second dispositif en réseau sont configurés pour utiliser le premier protocole de lecture multimédia ainsi que le second protocole de lecture multimédia. Le premier protocole de lecture multimédia et le second protocole de lecture multimédia sont incompatibles.
