With the advent of high-quality digital video cameras and sophisticated video editing software, it is becoming easier to tamper with digital videos. A common form of manipulation is to clone or duplicate frames or parts of a frame to remove people or objects from a video. We describe a computationally efficient technique for detecting this form of tampering. After detection of frame duplication localization of frame sequence has also been done. Detection as well as localization of forgery are found better than other techniques.
