  • Patent number: 10887363
    Abstract: Generating streaming decisions at one or more remote servers on behalf of a local client is disclosed. An indication of a content request, multi-dimensional client information, and local state information are received from a client device. A record specific to the client device is generated, in a data store, using the received local state information. The data store includes a plurality of records corresponding to respective different client devices. A set of instructions usable by the client device to obtain and play content is determined based at least in part the local state information received from the client device. The determined set of instructions is transmitted to the client device.
