We conjecture that composition of video events from various sources into personalized video playouts will become an important part of next generation streaming systems. Here, video search is a key component since it enables users to retrieve candidate video events based on their interests. One of the main challenges, however, is to analyze the videos in order to correctly identify the various events used to annotate and index the video data. Key problems with current video analysis solutions include that they 1) are complex and therefore require a lot of processing time resulting in large delays; 2) that they can only identify a limited set of events; and 3) that they are still too inaccurate, both giving false positives and failing to find all events. In our DAVVI prototype, we therefore extract metadata for our video search engine by combining existing automatic video analysis tools with currently untapped textual information available in the Internet. This provides an end-user experience where textual query results can be combined dynamically into seamless, highly personalized video playouts using an adaptive torrent-like HTTP streaming solution.
