Graphical Media Content Playing Sequencing and Creation

Users can access different videos from the same or different video servers. While looking at one piece of content, a user might refer to multiple videos. A user might also

view one or more video sections from the same or different videos. For example, one user wants to view the comedic/humorous video sections from multiple videos. Different tagging methods are available by which a user can select the video section from multiple videos and then play the videos. However, the existing method is not user friendly.

Video scripting systems, such as those that use a scripting language for processing videos, are enabling technologies for the disclosed solution. The main differences between the disclosure and current systems is the use of handwritten/voice input for the script, scene conglomeration, and natural language syntax.

Touch devices can facilitate a more user-friendly and flexible system for working with media content. Touch devices offer many opportunities by which a user can graphically create a play sequence.

The novel contribution is a method and system to integrate touch screen capabilities into systems for managing graphical media content. A user can utilize a stylus or finger

to write or draw in the progress bar of a video in order to provide direction for editing the content. Software installed in the device performs contextual analysis of the text and figure with respect to the video content. The system then executes any identified direction.

Using drawing and comments, the user can create links or a sequence of video sections, which the system plays accordingly. Examples of activities the user can graphically perform include (but are not limited to):

• Control frame rate • Share one or more video sections • Change the sound volume • Create a video playing workflow from multiple videos
• Write time or event based schedule

The touch-based system performs contextual analysis and executes the commands.

While playing any video, the user can isolate or select audio content from the video using the graphical drawing and comments.

To implement the system for using touch screen capabilities to managing graphical media, especially video, content:

1. The user opens any video portal 2. The user sees multiple videos are showing in the portal (the videos can be a search result)


3. User wants to create a consolidated video from the multiple search results

A. User can move the stylus or a finger over a particular point

B. User can visualize the section by looking at the thumbnails in order to understand the video contents from the task bar

4. Using stylus or finger, user can draw lines or write content 5. User can create multiple drawings to define video sections and can define the relations, sequence among the created video sections
6. Software installed in the device identifies the exact position of the drawings and

written text in relation to the exact po...
