Abstract. The possibility of using multimedia objects in modern applications
has proven to be a bonus. We want to provide ways in which the user can
interact with multimedia objects while it is been presented with features that go
beyond the regular controls of a VCR. Furthermore, the presentation of the
video can be modified by events happening in the surrounding environment.
This paper presents a proposal to model the user actions from contextual
information, in a way to ease its interaction with context-aware interactive
applications like Interactive TV (ITV). The paper also discusses how and which
kind of contextual information could be used in one ITV environments that
have an active network as the underlying infrastructure.
