  • Publication number: 20200168077
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and media for controlling a remote device using a touchscreen of a mobile device in a display inhibited state are provided. In some implementations, a method for controlling media playback devices is provided, the method comprising: detecting a media playback device to be controlled; determining that a touch-sensitive display of a mobile device has entered a display inhibited state in which presentation of a plurality of user interface elements is inhibited; receiving an input from the touch-sensitive display in the display inhibited state; selecting an action of the media playback device to be performed by determining that the received input corresponds to a user interface element from the plurality of user interface elements; and transmitting an instruction to perform the selected action to the media playback device.

  • Publication number: 20100034255
    Abstract: For collecting test data from different locations, one or more television apparatuses are disposed in different locations. In addition to decoding and playing received television stream, these television apparatuses contain sample generators for generating test samples based on the received television stream. To downsize the test samples, parts of the received television stream are replaced with placeholders. In addition, copyright materials may be removed and not contained in the test samples. These test samples are transmitted to a remote server via an upstream channel or a network other than a television network under test. With these test samples, a test television stream can be reconstructed to know signal characteristics and/or processing quality of the television apparatus under test.

  • Publication number: 20090190031
    Abstract: A string matching pattern is detected in a subtitle text stream extracted from a television stream. If there is a matched string covered by the string matching pattern in the subtitle text stream, a predetermined response is activated. For example, if the string matching pattern is a phone number syntax and there is a sequence number matching the phone number syntax, the response may be set as calling a phone according to the sequence number. Usually, subtitles only last for a few seconds, but the matched string may stay on a screen longer so that a user can have sufficient time to write it down.

  • Publication number: 20080085099
    Abstract: A method for playing a media source includes: extracting a reference subtitle stream from the media source, the reference subtitle stream being synchronized with a multimedia data stream of the media source; matching the reference subtitle stream to a substitute subtitle stream from a subtitle source for generating an output subtitle stream; and playing the multimedia data stream and the output subtitle stream synchronously.
