In this paper, we present e-Clips, a framework for the evaluation of content-based indexing and retrieval techniques applied to music video clips. The e-Clips framework integrates different video and audio feature extraction tools, whether automatic or manual. Its goal is to compare the relevance of each type of feature for providing a structured index that can be browsed, finding similar videos, retrieving videos that correspond to a query, and pushing music videos to the user according to his preferences. Currently, over 100 distinct music video clips have been indexed. For each video, shot boundaries were detected and key frames were extracted from each shot. Each key frame image was segmented into visual objects. The sound track was analyzed for basic features. Textual data, such as a song title and its performer was added by hand. The e-Clips framework is based on a client-server architecture that can stream VHS-quality video through an 100 Mbs Intranet. It should help evaluate the relevance of the descriptors generated by content-based indexing tools and suggest appropriate graphical user interfaces for non-specialist end users.
