Motivation for creating new user experiences while watching online video
Presentation held at NordiCHI 08 workshop: How Can HCI Improve Social Media Development, Lund, Sweden, 19-22.10.08, 2008
Sharing and watching video content are more or less two different activities performed separately. However there is potential to bring these two activities together. In this paper, we present ongoing research with the goal of creating a more intuitive media player. The results of a survey are presented, with questions related to media sharing and the sharing of videos in particular. By asking questions about sharing, producing and watching content we try to link the answers together to an overall user experience. Based on these findings, the design of a new metadata-based media player is presented, which would allow users to share and watch videos in new ways.
