In this paper, we integrate some results on automatic structuration of video in a multimedia authoring system. For that purpose, we identify the specific video structuration requirements of this kind of application and we propose an XML syntax for the description of the structure, the temporal and spatial organization of video. Finally we describe a prototype application that takes advantage of this structured video format.
