A video genre classification algorithm based on the voting from multiple SVMs is proposed in this work. While conventional genre classifiers use generic baseline features, we employ more specialized features to describe five video genres: animation, commercial, entertainment, drama, and sports. We also present a robust classification algorithm using multiple SVMs, which consider all possible binary grouping of the five genres. Given a query video, each SVM casts a probabilistic vote for each genre. Then, the optimal genre with the maximum votes is selected. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm provides more accurate classification performance than conventional algorithms.
