  • Patent number: 11122098
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques are provided for implementing error detection in a network, and, more particularly, to methods, systems, and apparatuses for implementing error and/or fault detection in a network and/or media stream and providing options to address the error and/or fault in the network and/or media stream. In various embodiments, a computer might detect an error in a first network and send a notification indicating that the error has occurred. The notification might contain one or more options to address the error in the first network. The computer, a user device, a service provider device, or a content provider device might receive and display the notification containing the one or more options. The computer, the user device, the service provider device, or the content provider device might then select at least one of the one or more options to address the error in the first network.

  • Publication number: 20200183479
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques are provided for implementing auto-switching and/or auto-playing video content. In various embodiments, a computing system might determine whether a display device that is communicatively coupled to the computing system is in an off-state, and might determine whether a first video content will begin its broadcast from a first content source within a predetermined period after initiating such determination. Based on a determination that the display device is in the off-state and based on a determination that the first video content will be broadcast within the predetermined period, the computing system might automatically switch the display device to an on-state, and might automatically set the display device to display the first video content being broadcast from the first content source.

  • Patent number: 10631061
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques are provided for implementing notifications on a display device, and more particularly, for implementing, interacting with, and displaying notifications associated with media content on a display device. In various embodiments, a media player might receive one or more notifications associated with media content. The media player might further receive user interaction with the one or more notifications. The user interaction might cause the media content to be displayed on a second display device, the media content to be displayed after a program being currently viewed by a user has ended, a preview of the media content to be displayed, a live stream of the media content to be displayed in the notification, the media content to be placed in a queue, the media content to be recorded, or a recording of the media content to be deleted.

  • Publication number: 20200112489
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques for machine learning based quality of experience optimization are provided. A system includes one or more network elements, an orchestrator, and a server. The server may further include a processor and non-transitory computer readable media comprising instructions executable by the processor to obtain telemetry information from a first protocol layer, obtain telemetry information from a second protocol layer, modify one or more attributes of the second protocol layer, observe a state of first protocol layer performance, assign a cost associated with changes to each of the one or more attributes of the second protocol layer, and optimize the first protocol layer performance based, at least in part, on the state of first protocol layer performance and the cost associated with the changes to one or more attributes of the second protocol layer. The orchestrator may be configured to modify the one or more attributes of the second protocol layer.

  • Publication number: 20190335228
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques are provided for implementing auto-switching and/or auto-playing video content. In various embodiments, based on a determination that the display device is in the on-state, a computing system might identify a first content source of a first video content that is displayed on a display screen of the display device. Based on a determination that a second video content will soon begin its broadcast from a second content source, based on a determination that the display device is in the on-state, and based on a determination that the second content source is different from the first content source, the computing system might automatically switch the display device from display of the first video content from the first content source to display of the second video content from the second content source, without user interaction from any user to initiate switching.
