Abstract

The popularization of video-viewing systems enables both adults and children to endlessly watch countless video clips. But such long-time video viewing might cause health problems especially for children, but rule-making tendencies are weaker among video-viewing systems than for watching television. Children have difficulty voluntarily curbing their watching of rich video clips because they are so attractive. In this study, we propose a video recommendation system that arranges video clips based on pre-defined times to support parental-mandated video-viewing stops. Our proposed system enables parents to limit the video-viewing time in advance and provides video clips that are arranged to finish exactly at pre-defined times. In this paper, we targeted adults to confirm the effectiveness of our approach. The results suggest that our proposed system increases post-viewing satisfaction.
