Abstract

See full text

A capability for handling network connection changes during adaptive bitrate streaming is provided. A method includes receiving a request for a change associated with a network connection of a client device where the network connection of the client device is configured to support delivery of a content item to the client device using an adaptive bitrate streaming process of the client device, and delaying the change associated with the network connection of the client device based on a state of the adaptive bitrate streaming process. A method includes detecting that a chunk of a content item, requested by an adaptive bitrate streaming process of a client device via a network connection of the client device, has been received at the client device, and delaying a request for a next chunk of the content item based on a state of a change associated with the network connection of the client device.
