The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Online content providers can provide electronic content to computing devices via the internet. The term 'electronic content' refers to any type of media that can be displayed on mobile and other computing devices. Computing devices include devices such as desktop computers, laptop computers, smart phones, tablet computers, personal digital assistants, etc. Electronic content can include text or multimedia hosted on websites, such as standard web pages or mobile web pages specifically formatted for display on computing devices. Electronic content can also include application software developed for computing devices that is designed to perform one or more specific tasks at the computing device.
"Online content providers, such as video management services, can provide access to electronic content. Online content providers can require subscribers to create and encode electronic content, such as audiovisual content, and upload the electronic content to the online content provider. Such online content providers do not provide the capability of creating and encoding electronic content from scratch. Creating and encoding electronic content may involve using the computing resources of the client device, such as processing cycles of a graphics processing unit ('GPU') or a central processing unit ('CPU').
"Using computing resources of the client device can present challenges, particularly with respect to mobile devices, such as smart phones or personal digital assistants. Mobile devices may have fewer processing and memory resources available to create and encode electronic content as compared to a desktop computer creating and encoding the same electronic content. Using computing resources of a client device, such as a mobile device, to create and encode electronic content can degrade the responsiveness or other performance of the client device."
In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventor's summary information for this patent application: "One embodiment is a recording application executed at a processor on a server. The recording application receives a request to record electronic content. The request is received from a client device via a first network connection between the server and the client device. A second network connection between a content provider and the client is used to provide the electronic content from the content provider to the client device. In response to receiving the request, the recording application establishes a third network connection between the server and the content provider. The recording application stores the electronic content provided via the third network connection. The electronic content is stored to a computer-readable medium.
"These illustrative embodiments are mentioned not to limit or define the disclosure, but to provide examples to aid understanding thereof. Additional embodiments are discussed in the Detailed Description, and further description is provided there.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE FIGURES
"These and other features, aspects, and advantages of the present disclosure are better understood when the following Detailed Description is read with reference to the accompanying drawings, where:
"FIG. 1 is a block diagram depicting exemplary computing systems for implementing certain embodiments;
"FIG. 2 is a modeling diagram illustrating an example flow of communications for a network recording service;
"FIG. 3 is a flow chart illustrating an exemplary method for recording electronic content by a network recording service; and
"FIG. 4 is a flow chart illustrating an example method for storing electronic content by the network recording service."
