  • Patent number: 10616666
    Abstract: Embodiments of the systems, methods, and computer readable medium devices disclosed herein provide a sentiment analysis system that can determine sentiment from an input of a user received from a device. Once the input is received, parsing and analysis can be performed to determine a particular sentiment corresponding to the input. The system can determine an overall sentiment of some or all of the users or viewers watching a particular video stream, such as a live video stream. The determined overall sentiment can represent a metric indicating what users generally feel about a portion of the video stream, and the system can use the determination to cause modification of the video stream or a future video stream to enhance the user experience.

  • Patent number: 10499088
    Abstract: Systems and methods for broadcasting a video stream are disclosed. The systems and methods can receive a video stream from a broadcaster, process the video steam, store the video streaming, and deliver the video stream to a viewer as a live video stream or a video on demand. The viewer may use an access token to access the video stream. The systems and methods may include an error detection mechanism for detecting an interrupt in the video stream. The systems and methods can restore the access token to its original state if an error is detected. The systems and methods can also include one or more link sharing mechanisms for sharing links to a video stream. The shareable links may be associated with share tokens.
