We propose a method to enrich the experience of watching videos by applying effects to video clips which are shared on the Web on the basis of eye movements. We implemented a prototype system as a Web browser extension and created several effects that are applied depending on the point of a viewer’s gaze. In addition, we conducted an experimental test, and clarified the usefulness of our effects, and investigated how adding the effects affected viewer experience.
