Enhanced video browsing using automatically extracted audio excerpts


We present a method for rapidly and robustly extracting audio excerpts without the overhead of speech recognition or speaker segmentation. An immediate application is to automatically augment keyframe-based video summaries with informative audio excerpts associated with the video segments represented by the keyframes. Short audio clips combined with keyframes comprise an extremely lightweight and web-browsable interface for auditioning video or similar media, without using bandwidth-intensive streaming video or audio.
