Research on sports videos is interesting and full of challenges due to the increase in the number of game videos and the demand for video diversification. This paper proposes a new method for presenting sports videos. Tennis videos are used as an example for the implementation of a viewing program called as Tennis Video 2.0. By video processes of structure analysis, content extraction, and enriched video rendering, the presentation of sports videos has three properties---Structure, Interactivity, and Scalability. Structure allows people to browse game videos and watch highlights on demands. Furthermore, the proposed strategy search is a convenient way to find favorite hit patterns. Interactivity provides people with functions to watch enriched game video rendered in real-time. These functions can provide more enjoyment to viewers watching games. Scalability enables the video to be scalable in a semantic domain. Four different levels of video content are transmitted to accommodate different bandwidth limitations. In conclusion, the proposed sports video viewer allows people to watch games in a different way than previously possible.
