The creation of media sharing communities has resulted in the astonishing increase of digital videos, and their wide applications in the domains like online news broadcasting, entertainment and advertisement. The improvement of these applications relies on effective solutions for social user access to videos. This fact has driven the research interest in the recommendation in shared communities. Though effort has been put into social video recommendation, the contextual information on social users has not been well exploited for effective recommendation. Motivated by this, in this paper, we propose a novel approach based on the video content and user information for the recommendation in shared communities. A new solution is developed by allowing batch video recommendation to multiple new users and optimizing the subcommunity extraction. We first propose an effective technique that reduces the subgraph partition cost based on graph decomposition and reconstruction for efficient subcommunity extraction. Then, we design a summarization-based algorithm which groups the clicked videos of multiple unregistered users and simultaneously provide recommendation to each of them. Finally, we present a nontrivial social updates maintenance approach for social data based on user connection summarization. We evaluate the performance of our solution over a large dataset considering different strategies for group video recommendation in sharing communities.
