Abstract

See full text

A video that advertises a particular web site may be a form of video spam. For example, pornographers often advertise their web sites by displaying a link to their web sites in videos, and then placing the videos on video-sharing services. This type of video spam may be detected by analyzing the video for the presence of text and then determining whether the text is a URL. If the text is a URL, the URL may be checked to determine whether it points to an objectionable web site. The determination of whether a URL points to an objectionable web site may be made by comparing the URL with a blacklist and/or whitelist, or by retrieving the URL and analyzing the retrieved content. If a video is found to be an advertisement for an objectionable web site, action may be taken, such as removing the video from a content database.
