    Video derives as a larger part of social media its value from active participation of services with opportunities for social interaction and engagement. Into social video services can be integrate other communication services like voice, chat, context awareness, and ratings to support a shared TV experience within a community. We make a research and pilots to find out how mobile video can effectively be utilized in service provision and increase mobile TV experience. In this paper we describe our vision and a platform of a mobile social video service. We show with three pilots the social video concept which can provide a great opportunity for content providers to keep directly in touch with users. The system also uses metadata based on semantic web for social discovery of video content generated by mobile users and for adapt content to what users want.
