Video Vocabulary

It is difficult for a browser to extract semantic information about a video recording described on a web page. Metadata such as speaker, actor, publisher, production company, title of the work, release date, download link, related image artwork and tags provide relevant context for the video recording, but are currently (2008) inaccessible to computers. In order to enable and encourage the sharing, distribution, syndication, and aggregation of video content, the authors propose the Video RDF vocabulary, an open standard for distributed video metadata. The authors have researched both numerous examples in the wild and earlier attempts at video metadata formats, and have designed the Video RDF Vocabulary around a simple minimal schema for video content. Feedback is encouraged and open participation is desired from all that are interested in contributing to the open exchange of video metadata on the Internet.
