The invention relates to a media content convergence technology and discloses a method for achieving local video convergence services. The method solves the problem that the user's viewing experience is affected due to the fact that convergence services are not conducted for local videos in traditional technologies. According to the method, local video client sides are converged, users can search video resources through a unique content access entry, at this moment, all video client sides search resources simultaneously, and the searching efficiency is high; playing records of users are subjected to local unified storage by a video convergence server and centralized list presentation at a local video convergence client side, so that users can review playing records conveniently; and the video convergence server can recommend video client sides which are smoothest in current networks to users according to speeds at which all video client sides visit corresponding networks, so that the user's viewing experience can be improved. The invention also discloses a corresponding system for achieving local video convergence services. The system is applicable to terminals such as smart televisions.
