Paper Abstract

This paper describes the organizational and playback features of Fischlar, a digital video library that allows users o record, browse and watch television programs on- line. Programs that can be watched and recorded are organized by personal recommendations, genre classifications, name and other attributes for access by general television users. Motivations and interactions of users with on-line television libraries are outlined and they are also supported by personalized library access, categorized programs, a combined player browse with content viewing history and content marks. The combined player browser supports a user who watches a program on different occasions in a non-sequential order.
