Description Video browsing is known as the interactive process of quickly navigating through the content of a video in an explorative fashion. In difference to video retrieval the purpose of video browsing is manifold: (1) get a quick overview of the content of a video and its structure, (2) find out where potentially interesting segments are located, and (3) interactively search for a specific part of content that cannot be found through video retrieval applications. A typical video browsing tool is a common video player that allows for quick exploration of the content of a video through a seeker‐bar (also known as time‐slider)and fast‐forward/reverse features. However, although video players can be used immediately after recording (i.e., require no time for content analysis) they don’t provide advanced browsing and navigation features. In contrast, they offer conventional browsing features that were invented together with the traditional video cassette recorders (VCR) more than 40 years ago. Therefore, a remarkable amount of research has been performed in the past in order to enable video browsing that allows for more efficient interactive search in videos. A recent review of video browsing tools can be found in our journal paper.
