Would appreciate if anyone can point out any research or case study that focuses on building a video based online community. I am interested in papers that discuss, both the business model and usability aspects of it.

Any pointers is appreciated.

Have you looked into what the deaf community has done? I haven't myself, just a thought...

One point which i could come up with was "Don’t take away users control and play the video without users interaction. Let the user select the video by  clicking a Play button, rather than automatically starting a video .

And came across a link which compares Youtube to usability Guidelines and what makes Youtube successful.


Hope this information helps...
