In this article, a new method for the recognition of obscene video contents is presented. In the proposed algorithm, different episodes of a video file starting by key frames are classified independently by using the proposed features. We present three novel sets of features for the classification of video episodes, including (1) features based on the information of single video frames, (2) features based on 3D spatiotemporal volume (STV), and (3) features based on motion and periodicity

Furthermore, we propose the connected components' relation tree to find the spatiotemporal relationship between the connected components in consecutive frames for suitable features extraction. To divide an input video into video episodes, a new key frame extraction algorithm is utilized, which combines color histogram of the frames with the entropy of motion vectors. We compare the results of the proposed algorithm with those of other methods. The results reveal that the proposed algorithm increases the recognition rate by more than 9.34% in comparison with existing methods.
