Title
(EN) AUDIO ONLY CONTENT
(FR) CONTENU AUDIO UNIQUEMENT
Abstract
(EN)
Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for requesting audio only data for video content. One of the methods includes receiving, from a host server on a network, a plurality of content items, wherein a content item of the plurality of content items references video content. If device conditions, network conditions, or both, indicate that video data of the video content referenced by the content item should not be played on the user device, the user device requests only the audio data of the video content referenced by the content item and plays only the audio data on the user device.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des procédés, des systèmes et un appareil, y compris des programmes informatiques codés sur des supports de stockage informatiques, permettant de demander des données audio uniquement pour un contenu vidéo. L'un des procédés consiste à recevoir, d'un serveur hôte sur un réseau, une pluralité d'éléments de contenu, un élément de contenu de la pluralité d'éléments de contenu référençant un contenu vidéo. Si les conditions du dispositif et/ou les conditions du réseau indiquent que des données vidéo du contenu vidéo référencé par l'élément de contenu ne doivent pas être lues sur le dispositif utilisateur, le dispositif utilisateur demande uniquement les données audio du contenu vidéo référencé par l'élément de contenu et reproduit uniquement les données audio sur le dispositif utilisateur.
