SmartSkip: Consumer level browsing and skipping of digital video content

Video presentation from the 2002 CHI conference. In this paper, we describe an interface for browsing and skipping digital video content in a consumer setting; that is, sitting and watching television from a couch using a standard remote control. We compare this interface with two other interfaces that are in common use today and found that subjective satisfaction was statistically better with the new interface. Performance metrics however, like time to task completion and number of clicks were worse. methods of skipping through content along with a novel interface that we developed to see what consumers preferred and how they performed with three different interfaces.
