We describe an interactive access of video content via Internet for multimedia computer clients. The users are integrated within one community of interest, having the same interaction and content manipulation options. More than that, a community awareness is established and displayed to every user within the community in order to form a experience of watching Video together with other people within a virtual world. The system architecture is shown and the basic processing of community interests and behaviour as well as the system s interaction metaphors like conversation, is discussed. The prototype of the Community TV system implementing the architecture and functionality is presented.
