Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0149035A2] The invention relates to a method for transmitting and replaying digital video files. According to the inventive method, digital video files are encoded and transmitted to receivers, after request and by means of packet-switched data transmission and a provider, whereby said receivers are authorised to receive said data by virtue of the receiver-specific identification thereof. The video files are stored in a storage medium of a receiving and replaying device, preferably a multi-media PC, that is allocated to the receiver. Video files are selected for producing programme sequences for playback. Said sequences are stored in a memory for programme sequences. The video files are replayed according to the programme sequence. The aim of the invention is to replay the individual video files in a centrally controllable manner and as flexibly as possible. A head data set that is also called header and contains information for controlling playback of the video files is allocated to each video file.
