In this paper we investigate the distribution of shot lengths for video sequences containing diverse content. Accurate models for shot lengths are important to model video both for content-based retrieval applications and for performing queuing analysis for the design of video buffers in multimedia networks. Using a large dataset collected from CSPAN programs we have analyze the Pareto, Weibull, and gamma distributions as possible models for the shot length distribution. We have compare the goodness of fit of these possible distribution models using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistic.
