Publication number: US20220109912A1
Application number: 17/644,120

The disclosure provides for use of steganographically-encoded data as a basis to control content modification. A server could determine through a fingerprint comparison that a portion of media content on a channel being rendered by a content presentation device matches at least one modifiable-content segment, such as at least one replaceable ad. The server could then use watermark data encoded in the media content of the channel as a basis to determine an actual identity of a modifiable-content segment present on the channel, so as to then control content modification.

Publication number: US20220103895A1
Application number: 17/643,944

A method and system for controlling implementation of dynamic content modification. The disclosure provides for using at least one steganographically-encoded timestamp in a media stream transmitted to a media client as a basis to determine a transmission delay for media-stream transmission to the media client, and for providing the determined transmission delay as a basis to facilitate control over whether to have the media client implement dynamic content modification. In addition, the disclosure provides for receiving respectively from each of various media clients a report indicating transmission delay determined for the media client based on such steganographically-encoded timestamp data, and using the transmission delays for the media clients to establish a dynamic-content-modification footprint that could be used to control whether, where, and to what extent dynamic content modification will be applied.

An example apparatus includes message generator circuitry to generate a first message for a first server of a first Internet domain in response to detecting a login event at a client device, the login event associated with an Internet-based service of a second Internet domain, the second Internet domain outside the first Internet domain, and a communication interface to receive a second message from the first server, the second message including a global unique identifier (GUID) and a login timestamp, the GUID identifying at least one of the client device or a user of the client device to the first Internet domain, the message generator circuitry to generate a third message including (a) the GUID, (b) a cookie identifier associated with the second Internet domain, and (c) the login timestamp, the third message to cause generation of an identifier-to-cookie map at a second server of the second Internet domain.
