  • Patent number: 10965731
    Abstract: A technology is disclosed by which, when plural content data are successively transmitted from a server apparatus to a reproduction apparatus through a client apparatus, if the transmission is interrupted, the transmission of the content data can be resumed from the point at which the transmission is interrupted. The transfer device includes a storage section for storing a transmission object list including content identification information corresponding to plural content data to be transmitted from a server apparatus to a reproduction apparatus connected to a client apparatus through the client apparatus. A reception section successively receives the content data from the server apparatus. A transmission section successively transfers the successively received content data to the reproduction apparatus. A control section deletes, every time content data is transferred, the corresponding content identification information from the transmission object list stored in the storage section.
