Intelligent Video Thumbnail Selection And Generation


In accordance with one embodiment, an intelligent video thumbnail selection and generation tool may select a relevant and visually stimulating image from a video file and generate a thumbnail including the image. The image may be selected by computing a relevancy metric for an image in the file based on one or more selected relevant features, and comparing that relevancy metric with the metric of at least one other image in the file. In another embodiment, a series of images in a video file may be divided into shots. One of the shots may be selected based on a shot relevancy metric and a key image from the shot may be selected as a thumbnail based on a key image relevancy metric, where the shot relevancy metric and the key image relevancy metrics may be computed based on one or more relevant content features.
