This paper presents a novel time-series linear search (TLS) method for detecting video copies. The method utilizes a sliding window to locate window sequences that are near-duplicates of a given query sequence. We address two issues of the conventional TLS method in order to strengthen its video copy detection capability. First, to accelerate the TLS process, we use a sequence-level signature as a compact representation of a video sequence based on the min-hash theory, and develop an efficient

Second, to improve the robustness of the TLS method, we use two techniques, namely, window length estimation and threshold transform, to resolve the containment relation problem caused by various types of video transformation and editing, such as frame cropping and speed change. The results of experiments on the MUSCLE-VCD-2007 dataset demonstrate that the proposed method is efficient and robust against different types of video transformation and editing.
