Automatic video analysis tools have dramatically increased in importance as the Internet video revolution has blossomed. This thesis presents an approach for automatic comparison of videos based on the inherent content. Also, an approach for creating groups (or clusters) of similar videos from a large video database is given; First, methods simplifying and summarizing the content of videos will be presented. Such methods include shot boundary detection and key frame feature extraction; Next, a comparison of different distance measures between videos will be given. These distance measures will be used to construct video clusters, and results will be compared.
