Audio Guide to the Imperfections of a Perfect Masterpiece. Oct 16, Before , the easiest way to run the time off the clock in a soccer game was just to pass the ball to the goalkeeper, who could pick the ball up, and hold it for a few seconds before throwing it back into play.
This was considered by some to be unsportsmanlike and bad for spectators. So in , the International Football Association Board, the committee in charge of determining the rules of soccer, made a minor change to the laws of the game.

For example, in the case of audio or audiovisual media, the media information can include one or more of: title, album, track, artist, composer and genre.
These types of media information are specific to particular media items. In addition, the media information can pertain to quality characteristics of the media items.
Still further, the host computer includes a play module The play module is a software module that can be utilized to play certain media items stored in the media store The play module can also display on a display screen or otherwise utilize media information from the media database Typically, the media information of interest corresponds to the media items to be played by the play module The host computer also includes a communication module that couples to a corresponding communication module within the media player A connection or link removeably couples the communication modules and In another embodiment, the connection or link is a wireless channel or connection through a wireless network.
Hence, depending on implementation, the communication modules and may communicate in a wired or wireless manner. The media player also includes a media store that stores media items within the media player Optionally, the media store can also store data, i. The media items being stored to the media store are typically received over the connection or link from the host computer More particularly, the management module sends all or certain of those media items residing on the media store over the connection or link to the media store within the media player Additionally, the corresponding media information for the media items that is also delivered to the media player from the host computer can be stored in a media database In this regard, certain media information from the media database within the host computer can be sent to the media database within the media player over the connection or link Still further, playlists identifying certain of the media items can also be sent by the management module over the connection or link to the media store or the media database within the media player Furthermore, the media player includes a play module that couples to the media store and the media database Hence, in one embodiment, the media player has limited or no capability to manage media items on the media player However, the management module within the host computer can indirectly manage the media items residing on the media player As still another example, if changes i.
In another embodiment, the media player has limited or no capability to manage playlists on the media player However, the management module within the host computer through management of the playlists residing on the host computer can indirectly manage the playlists residing on the media player In this regard, additions, deletions or changes to playlists can be performed on the host computer and then by carried over to the media player when delivered thereto.
As previously noted, synchronization is a form of media management. The ability to automatically initiate synchronization was also previously discussed above and in the related application noted above.
Still further, however, the synchronization between devices can be restricted so as to prevent automatic synchronization when the host computer and media player do not recognize one another. According to one embodiment, when a media player is first connected to a host computer or even more generally when matching identifiers are not present , the user of the media player is queried as to whether the user desires to affiliate, assign or lock the media player to the host computer.
When the user of the media player elects to affiliate, assign or lock the media player with the host computer, then a pseudo-random identifier is obtained and stored in either the media database or a file within both the host computer and the media player. In one implementation, the identifier is an identifier associated with e. In another implementation, the identifier is associated with e. Image based browsers with image functionality typically require several different image formats to support the various display modes of the browser.
For example, the browser may require a full image for the primary position as well as various thumbnail images for the secondary positions, which may help a user browse through a group of images.
This may include partial versions, skewed versions, versions that included reflection, and the like. One method for creating the various images of the image browser window is to download the original image to the portable media device and then to transcode the original image into the required formats on the portable media device when they need to be displayed.
This is sometimes referred to as processing data on-the-fly. While this may work, it is generally believed that this methodology has several drawbacks that make it less appealing to the user. For example, because formatting images is a process intensive task especially on portable media devices that lack the horsepower of their larger hosts , portable media devices tend to operate slowly and consume more power. Hence, formatting images on portable media devices can result in an unsatisfactory user experience.
For one, the user has to wait while the image is being formatted. For another, the battery of the portable media device tends to run out more regularly. In order to reduce or overcome these drawbacks, images can be preformatted on the host before or during the download thereto. When an image is identified for download various preformatted images derived from the original image and possibly the original images are sent to the portable media device. The processing is performed on the host, which can handle these tasks more easily than the portable media player.
The tasks may, for example, include scaling, cropping, rotation, color correction, skewing, reflection, and the like. Once received by the portable media device, the preformatted images are stored for later use. By storing these images, the media device is relieved from having to perform any of the labor intensive tasks associated with image formatting.
That is, the preformatted images relieve the media device of much of the work required to display them. As a result, the device operates faster and without repeated needs for recharging.
In one embodiment, at least some of the preformatted images are thumbnail images. During media device use, the image based browser may request that an image to be displayed.
Instead of processing the original image as in the method described above, the device simply obtains the appropriate preformatted image from media database and presents it to the user on a display. The preformatted images may include a full image for the primary position and several different thumbnail sized images for the secondary positions. However, in some cases, the media device can still be used to perform some processing when image are to be presented e.
In some cases, the media device when connected to a host that expresses or informs the host as to which image formats are desired when an image is downloaded to the media device.
The media device may, for example, send various image profiles corresponding to the different formats to the host device. The image profile generally contains the attributes or keys for each image format. By way of example, the image profiles may describe size, orientation, pixel format, color depth, etc.
This particular methodology helps with compatibility issues that typically come up when different media devices having different versions of software and hardware are used, i.
The method may, for example, be performed by media management software. The method includes blocks , and In block , an image download request is received at the host device. The image download request designates images stored on the host device for downloading to the portable media device. The request can be made at the host device or the media device through a user interface.
For example, the user may select a group of images and then select a download button. Alternatively, the request can be made by the media device without user input. In block , an image collection for each requested image is produced at the host device. Each image collection contains the new versions or different formats of the original image. In some cases, the image collection may also contain the original image. For example, the new versions may include a primary image and various secondary images, each of which are typically smaller versions of the primary image and may be reconfigured, skew, reflect, etc.
It should be noted that the file sizes of the new versions are typically much smaller than the file size of the original image. They therefore take up less space in storage than would the corresponding original image. Each new version has a different image profile based on the display needs of the portable media device. The image profiles for particular media devices may be stored in the host device or the image profiles may be given to the host device by the media device.
In the first case, the media device may provide the host device with an Identifier ID , which can be used by the host to determine the image profiles for the requesting media device.
For example, after obtaining the ID, the host may refer to a previously stored table or list that includes all the capabilities of the identified media device. In the later case, the media device may automatically upload this information as part of synchronization or handshaking procedure with the host device. In block , the image collection for each requested image is sent to the portable media device as part of the downloading process. Once received by the portable media device, the image collection is stored in the portable media device for later use.
The image collection may be stored in the memory of the portable media device. In order to efficiently store the images in memory, each of the different image sets may be stored in their own file. Once downloaded and during operation of the media device, a display request may be made on the media device. Thereafter, one or more images are retrieved from memory based on the display request.
The display request indicates the images to be shown on the media player. Once retrieved, the images can be displayed. In a browse mode, the images are displayed as determined by the browser. The method includes blocks , , and In block , image data is stored. The image data includes at least a plurality of image collections.
The image collections contain a plurality of differently formatted images based on an original image and may also include the original image. The image collections are not formed on the portable media device; instead, they are separately generated on a device other than the portable media device. The image collections may for example be generated on a host device that downloads them to the portable media device for storage.
By way of example, the image collections may be provided by the method described in FIG. Alternatively or additionally, the image collections may be downloaded from another portable media device that has already downloaded them from a host.
In block , a display command is received. The display command designates one or more images of the image data to be displayed. The display command may be generated via a user making a selection on the user interface of the media player. In block , at least the designated images are retrieved.
In some cases, only the designated images are retrieved. In other case, more than the designated images are retrieved. For example, although the display command may only designate a single image, other images associated or linked to that image may be additionally retrieved.
In block , the one or more retrieved images are outputted. The retrieved images may be outputted to a display. Upon receiving the retrieved images, the retrieved images are displayed. In some cases, all of the images are displayed, and in other case only a portion of the images are displayed. Examples of transferring images between a host and a portable device as well as displaying images at a portable device can be found in U.
