A recently filed patent (Publication Number: US20230132371A9) describes a system that involves the display of live videos and the generation of advice information for the distributing user. The system utilizes one or more computer processors to execute machine-readable instructions.

The system works by displaying a live video distributed by a distributing user on a first screen presented to a viewing user. Simultaneously, advice information is generated for the distributing user during the distribution of the live video. However, the advice information is not displayed on the first screen but instead on a second screen presented to the distributing user. This allows the distributing user to receive guidance without interrupting the viewing experience of the audience.

The advice information is generated based on various factors. One such factor is the viewing user information, which includes details such as the use history and update history of the viewing user's profile. Additionally, the advice information can be generated based on information input by a user supervising the distributing user, distribution performance information related to the live video, distributing user information, and external service information obtained from an external service.

The system also includes a comment display area on the second screen, which displays comments related to the actions performed by the viewing user. The advice information is displayed in this comment display area, allowing the distributing user to easily access and respond to the advice provided.

In summary, this patent describes a system that enables the display of live videos while providing advice information to the distributing user. The advice information is generated based on various factors and is displayed on a separate screen, ensuring that it does not interfere with the viewing experience of the audience. The system also includes a comment display area for easy access and response to the advice provided.
