Taking inspiration from some work my supervisor did on the Digital Dance Archives website, exploiting a match heat map can help identify matches within a video.
Since I am currently pushing for everything to be done in HTML5, I started thinking about how I could achieve a similar effect utilising the <video> tag. So after googling around came across a blog for creating a custom player that is cross browser compatible. A custom player would allow me to be able to add in the heat map without much difficulty.
Sadly I am currently just prototyping but I hope to get a full system released soon so you can see the full system in action, probably applied to generic key frame video retrieval.
