Automatic Video Summarization Using the Optimum-Path Forest Unsupervised Classifier
In this paper a novel method for video summarization is presented, which uses a color-based feature extraction technique and a graph-based clustering technique. One major advantage of this method is that it is parameter-free, that is, we do not need to define neither the number of shots or a consecutive-frames dissimilarity threshold. The results have shown that the method is both effective and efficient in processing videos containing several thousands of frames, obtaining very meaningful summaries in a quick way.
