For an MPEG coding scheme, the encoder can do more than video compression. In this paper, a novel MPEG codec embedded with scene-effect information detection and insertion is proposed to provide more functionality at the decoder end. Based on the macroblock (MB) type of information that is generated simultaneously in the encoding process, a single-pass automatic scene-effect insertion MPEG coding scheme can be achieved. Using the USER_DATA of picture header, the video output bitstreams by our

The proposed method provides a solution toward upgrading the existing MPEG codec with low complexity to accomplish at least two major advantages. Precise and effective video browsing resulting from the scene-effect extraction can significantly reduce the user's time to look up what they are interested in. For video transmission, the bitstreams containing scene-effect information can obtain better error concealment performance when scene changes are involved. Compared with the gain it achieves, the payout of our algorithm is very worthy with comparatively small efforts.
