(EN) METHOD FOR ENHANCING A USER VIEWING EXPERIENCE WHEN CONSUMING A SEQUENCE OF MEDIA
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'AMÉLIORATION DE L'EXPÉRIENCE DE VISIONNAGE D'UN UTILISATEUR LORSQU'IL CONSOMME UNE SÉQUENCE DE CONTENU MULTIMÉDIA
Abstract
(EN)
Methods and systems are described for a media guidance application that enhances the viewing experiences of users consuming a sequence of media. In particular, the media guidance application may enhance the viewing experiences of users consuming a sequence of media by removing portions of redundant media that were previously consumed by the user.

L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour une application de guidage multimédia qui améliore les expériences de visionnage d'utilisateurs consommant une séquence de contenu multimédia. En particulier, l'application de guidage multimédia peut améliorer les expériences de visionnage d'utilisateurs consommant une séquence de contenu multimédia en supprimant des parties redondantes de contenu multimédia qui ont été précédemment consommées par l'utilisateur.
