Design of a Casual Video Authoring Interface based on Navigation Behaviour We propose the use of a personal video navigation history, which records a user's viewing behaviour, as a basis for casual video editing and sharing. Our novel interaction method supports users' navigation of previously-viewed intervals to construct new videos via simple playlists. The intervals in the history can be individually previewed and searched, filtered to identify frequently-viewed sections, and added to a playlist from which they can be refined and re-ordered to create new videos. Interval selection and playlist creation using a history-based interaction is compared to a more conventional filmstrip-based technique. We performed several user studies to evaluate the usability and performance of this method and found significant results indicating improvement in video interval search and selection.
