Video as format of computer related material is becoming more and more common [1,2]. Every day new multimedia information systems appear on the market containing more and more video. Also the format of information on Internet is clearly evolving to a video form. Initially we saw the embedding of images on text pages, now we see simple animation on almost every web page. We also know that the amount of information stored in computers is growing. So, the question that naturally arises is: “How to get the information you want?” We propose here a new tool for leading the user to make the right question to retrieve the information he wants inside a video.
