Welcome to TubeFiler Webdemo
TubeFiler - an Automatic Web Video Catgorizer In context of the Multimedia Grand Challenge, a set of open problems specified by industrial partners, we present the TubeFiler framework, as our contribution to the Google Challenge: Robust, As-Accurate-As-Human Genre Classification for Video. The Google Challenge particularly aims to encourage more work in the area of semantic understanding of a broad variety of videos.

The TubeFiler framework provides two key features:

- an automatic multimodal categorization of videos into a pre-defined genre hierarchy
- the support of additional fine-grained hierarchy levels based on unsupervised learning

For each genre, videos are downloaded from YouTube together with their tags and titles. Both visual features and metadata are used to train a statistical model, which is then used to categorize new incoming videos.
