In this paper, we present major issues in video parsing, abstraction, retrieval and semantic analysis. We discuss the success, the difficulties and the expectations in these areas. In addition, we identify important opened problems that can lead to more sophisticated ways of video content analysis. For video parsing, we discuss topics in video partitioning, motion characterization and object segmentation. The success in video parsing, in general, will have a great impact on video representation

These representation schemes in overall serve as a good start for video retrieval. We then describe visual features, in particular motion, and similarity measures adopted for retrieval. Next, we discuss the recent computational approaches in bridging the semantic gap for video content understanding.
