A method for automatic and fast shot detection for the MPEG video is proposed. Shot detection is the first step in analyzing and searching a large amount of video data. Our proposed method is based on activity of images as well as intra MBs in the video frame. It is possible to detect scene changes rapidly by using information from the compressed MPEG video data without the need for full-frame decoding. Experimental results show that the proposed method can provide good performance at a low computational cost.
