  • Patent number: 10649485
    Abstract: Described are examples for synchronizing multiple timing sources in a computing device. At least a first clock associated with a first timing source and a second clock associated with a second timing source can be maintained at the computing device. A request for an indication of a difference in values between the first clock and the second clock can be received from the application. A first elapsed time of the first clock and a second elapsed time of the second clock from a previous instance of an event can be determined by the computing device at an instance of a reoccurring event in a domain of one of the first timing source or the second timing source. An indication related to the first elapsed time and the second elapsed time can be provided to the application.

  • Patent number: 10652594
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for presentation of key frames. In one embodiment, an encoded video file is generated where one or more bits are assigned to key frames and minimizes the number of bits assigned to delta frames. Each key frame may be presented to a user during trick mode operation (e.g., fast forward, rewind, pause, or random seek operation). When the encoded video file is given to a packager, the packager generates a manifest file listing the byte information (byte offset and number of bytes) for each key frame in the encoded video file. When a user inputs a trick play mode command, the packager provides the manifest file to the client device of the user and the client device requests the bytes for the key frames of the video file from the content delivery network.
