    ABSTRACT

    Nowadays, people capture, edit and share more and more home videos. Devices with video capturing capability and services for video sharing and editing are becoming increasingly popular. This study was conducted to chart in more detail what users currently do with their home videos, and what their desires, problems and needs are. The results of an Internet-based survey learned that home videos have a social function. They are used to keep memories of group experiences and watched mainly with groups of interested acquaintances. Furthermore, home videos are shared and edited quite frequently. The insights we report here can serve as starting points for designing better and more helpful systems for managing home videos.
