In this paper we present the WebSTAR system, which is a prototype of a video database on the World Wide Web. The WebSTAR system allows owners of video material to make their video available on the Internet together with suitable metadata descriptions. Through ordinary web browser, users on the Internet can search, browse and play back the available video material on their computer screen. Users who want a deeper understanding of the contents of the video can have the relevant metadata visualized in synchronicity with the video playback.
