Recently, the witness of the rapidly growing popularity of short videos on different Internet platforms has intensified the need for a background music (BGM) retrieval system. However, existing video-music retrieval methods only based on the visual modality cannot show promising performance regarding videos with fine-grained virtual contents. In this paper, we also investigate the widely added voice-overs in short videos and propose a novel framework to retrieve BGM for fine-grained short

For balancing the modalities, we dynamically assign different weights to the modal features via a fusion gate. For paring the query and the BGM embeddings, we introduce a triplet pseudo-label loss to constrain the semantics of the modal embeddings. As there are no existing virtual-content video-BGM retrieval datasets, we build and release two virtual-content video datasets HoK400 and CFM400. Experimental results show that our method achieves superior performance and outperforms other state-of-the-art methods with large margins.
