If I understand your question correctly, you are looking for resources
to help in the planning and creation of an XML-based digital video
There are many resources around about the creation of XML digital
libraries. Here are some of the better references I have been able to
A Digital Library Framework based on XML
An online paper, available through CiteSeer an online digital
library itself. This details the implementation of a digital library
within an educational institution. While quite specific, many of the
principles are very adaptable.
The following citations from that paper also seem very applicable:
Metadata for Digital Libraries: Architecture and Design Rationale
Key Concepts in the Architecture of the Digital Library
XVIP: An XML-Based Video Information Processing System
This paper describes a project to create an XML-based video
information processing system, which extracts information from video
and stores the information in a multimedia digital video library.
Design and Implementation of XML-Based Digital Video Library System
From the same author, describes an XML-Based Digital Video Library
(XDVL) System. The system includes automatic processes from video
creation through video delivery, which involves storing, searching,
indexing and retrieval of video contents.
Also, this link at the Vassar College Library provides links to a
number of related projects and resources.
There is also D-Lib Magazine, a publication devoted to digital library
http://www.dlib.org/ - check their reference links section especially,
it features links to many papers and resources
Another resource is Digital-Libraries.Net
(http://www.digital-libraries.net/). It seems like it may not have
been updated for a while, but it does have a very extensive collection
of links (http://www.digital-libraries.net/links/).
There are also more resources available here, from the International
Federation of Library Associations and Institutions
Also worth reviewing is the Informedia project at Carnegie Mellon
I hope these resources are what you were looking for. I have tried to
provide a range of aspects from specifically video libraries to more
general themes such as metadata. Also there is a huge amount of
information available from the resource links I provided.
If there is anything you need me clarify, I am happy to do so,
although I am keeping strange hours at the moment so my response may
be a little delayed.

Many of the links I have provided are university projects. A great
deal of the work done in this area is coming out of computer science
programs worldwide. For example, the work of <a
href="http://www.cse.cuhk.edu.hk/~lyu/">Dr. Michael Lyu</a> from the
Chinese University of Hong Kong. He is an author of two of the
documents I have linked to, and seems to be quite an authority of the
CMU's Informedia projects that I linked to are also ongoing university
If these links really don't seem to be what you are looking for, them
please let me know. With a little more information on what you are
looking for, and perhaps how you indeed to use it (are you doing
research yourself in this area and looking for citations, or do you
want to develop somthing like this) I maybe able to find some better
