Social networking and content sharing are the two major reasons for the explosion of web 2.0 applications in recent years. Although more people enjoy Internet and multimedia via their cell phones, most of the services for online video sharing are still restricted to traditional PC users. The existing systems of mobile video sharing do not fully utilize the mobility benefits or decently address the performance issues caused by the limitations of network and energy in mobile devices. In this report, we propose MoViShare (Mobile Video Share), a universal video sharing platform that will provide anytime anywhere video browsing and publishing services for mobile devices. MoViShare targets to create and maintain location-aware mobile social networks, and to apply video abstraction technique for saving bandwidth and energy. We detail the MoViShare design in this report, and demonstrate a prototype design based on Nokia Symbian development kit and N96 smartphones.
