In this paper we propose an in-depth evaluation of the performance of video descriptors to multimodal video genre categorization. We discuss the perspective of designing appropriate late fusion techniques that would enable to attain very high categorization accuracy, close to the one achieved with user-based text information.

Results show that the proposed approach significantly improves genre categorization performance, outperforming other existing approaches. The main contribution of this paper is in the experimental part, several valuable interesting findings are reported that motivate further research on video genre classification.
