    In this paper we explore the value of capturing and analysing video data, and the challenges faced with ‘in the wild’ contexts. More specifically we review issues raised through prior research to de-velop an approach that seeks to understand how contemporary households interact with, and around, multiple screens, devices and media platforms. The nature of this topic leads us to con-sider how video is conceptualised and analysed in film and television studies, and the value this understanding can have to HCI, particularly as media consumption and computer use become more intertwined through online streaming, interactive television, companion applications and in-tegration with social media.
