Video content description has become an important task with the standardization effort of MPEG-7, which aims at easy and efficient access to visual information. In this paper we propose a system to extract the object-based and global features from compressed MPEG video using the motion vector information for video retrieval. The reliability of the motion information is enhanced by a motion accumulation process. The global features like motion activity and camera motion parameters are extracted

The number of objects in a given video shot is determined by the proposed K-means clustering procedure. The object segmentation is done by applying EM algorithm.
