  • Patent number: 11910064
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for generating for display, with a media asset, one or more preview images. If a preview image corresponding to an advanced play position, relative to a current play position, provides a spoiler, an alternative preview image is generated for display. The alternative image may be a modified version of the original image in which at least a portion is removed or masked, or a replacement image, e.g., an image from another play position, a promotional image, or an indication that the preview image is not displayed. A different alternative image or modification may be used when a subsequent play position has been reached if the unmodified preview image contains a different spoiler, and/or a previous modification is no longer required, e.g., if, at the subsequent play position, the original image is no longer a spoiler, the original image may be used as a preview image.

    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to annotated video content. A computing platform may train a model using video content, which may configure the model to classify topics and identify speakers of future video content using STT and NLP. The computing platform may input new video content into the model, which may output an annotated version of the new video content. The model may be configured to generate the annotated version of the new video content by: 1) using one or more STT techniques to produce STT results, 2) classifying topics based on the STT results, 3) identifying speakers based on analysis of voice information, and 4) generating an index indicating a speaker and/or a topic corresponding to time segments. The computing platform may store the annotated version of the new video content, which may be navigable by a user using the visual index.

  • Patent number: 11770565
    Abstract: In various embodiments, a graph streaming application computes a first distance along a first potential playback path between a first playback position and a first media content block. The graph streaming application then computes a first score for the first media content block based on the first distance and a first probability associated with the first potential playback path. Similarly, the graph streaming application computes a second score for a second media content block based on a second playback position, a second potential playback path, and a second probability associated with the second potential playback path. The graph streaming application compares the first score and the second score to determine that the first media content block should be buffered by a client device. The graph streaming application then causes the first media content block to be stored in a playback buffer for subsequent playback on the client device.

Also, in response to identification of a person matching at least one of the whole body image and the face image of the person of interest by at least one of the first collation processing and the second collation processing, the server outputs a notification that the person of interest is found.

  • Patent number: 11621021
    Abstract: A remapping space may define correspondence between times within a video and times within a time-remapped video. Responsive to user selection of a moment within the video for initiation of time remapping using a selected playback speed, a start point and an end point may be inserted at the selected moment within the remapping space. Responsive to user selection of a segment within the video to apply the selected playback speed in the time remapping, the start point and/or the end point may be moved to change the correspondence between times within the video and times within the time-remapped video.

  • Patent number: 11617018
    Abstract: A main stream contains successive content elements of video and/or audio information that encode video and/or audio information at a first data rate. A computation circuit (144) computes main fingerprints from the successive content elements. A reference stream is received having a second data rate lower than the first data rate. The reference stream defines a sequence of the reference fingerprints. A comparator unit (144) compares the main fingerprints with the reference fingerprints. The main stream is monitored for the presence of inserted content elements between original content elements, where the original content elements have main fingerprints that match successive reference fingerprints and the inserted content elements have main fingerprints that do not match reference fingerprints. Rendering of inserted content elements to be skipped. In an embodiment when more than one content element matches only one is rendered.

  • Patent number: 11574654
    Abstract: In various examples, recordings of gameplay sessions are enhanced by the application of special effects to relatively high(er) and/or low(er) interest durations of the gameplay sessions. Durations of relatively high(er) or low(er) predicted interest in a gameplay session are identified, for instance, based upon level of activity engaged in by a gamer during a particular gameplay session duration. Once identified, different variations of video characteristic(s) are applied to at least a portion of the identified durations for implementation during playback. The recordings may be generated and/or played back in real-time with a live gameplay session, or after completion of the gameplay session. Further, video data of the recordings themselves may be modified to include the special effects and/or indications of the durations and/or variations may be included in metadata and used for playback.
