Due to the extensive use of information technology and the recent developments in multimedia systems, the
amount of multimedia data available to users has increased exponentially. Video is an example of
multimedia data as it contains several kinds of data such as text, image, meta-data, visual and audio.

this, content based indexing and retrieval systems were implemented using color histogram, Texture feature
(GLCM), edge density and motion..
