Abstract

See full text

In one example, video may be analyzed and divided into segments. Character recognition may be performed on the segments to determine what text appears in the segments. The text may be used to assign tags to the video and/or to the segments. Segments that appear visually similar to each other (e.g., segments that appear to be different views of the same person) may be grouped together, and a tag that is assigned to one segment may be propagated to another segment. The tags may be used to perform various types of tasks with respect to the video. One example of such a task is to perform a search on the video.
