Patent number: 10523985
Abstract: A client device receives, from a server, first content directed to a first buffer in the client device and second content directed to a second buffer in the client device. The second buffer is deeper than the first buffer. The client device buffers the first content in the first buffer and buffers the second content in the second buffer. At least a portion of the second content is buffered in the second buffer simultaneously with buffering the first content in the first buffer. The client device selects between the first content in the first buffer and the second content in the second buffer and provides the selected content for display.
