Method and System for Dynamically Assembling Video Segments from Different Videos based on Search Criteria and a Video Template

There are many cases where people want to view videos to learn about a topic or place. In existing video search engines, users can perform a search for different documentary topics. Often, topics or subject is not present on video server of documentaries. For example, a user is searching for a documentary on "Dubai". In the case of Dubai, the user may find many search results for documentary videos. However, when the topic is a little more obscure such as "Cooch Behar", then the user may not find the documentary videos. The user may find several smaller isolated videos for "Cooch Behar". Typically, the search result videos returned contain segments of video matching the interest of the user, but not likely to contain all criteria. Further, the video format or sequence in the search result videos may not be as desired by the user. In documentary movies, generally, a template format is often followed such as history, people, administration, food, occupation and culture. Currently, video segments can be assembled into a contiguous video. However, the video assembly relies on user intervention.

Disclosed is a method and system for dynamically assembling video segments from different videos based on search criteria and a video template. The method and system enables a user to perform a video search based on the search criteria and the video template. For example, the video template is a documentary video template. The search criteria and the video template define video attributes and topic of interest. The video attributes can be one or more of, but not limited to, segment and total length, video quality, video segment sequence whereas the topic of interest can be one of, but not limited to, history of a place, architecture, people, commerce, places to visit, food, and occupations of local population. The video search results are further analyzed and processed into the video segments. Thereafter, the video segments are dynamically assembled into a contiguous video in the desired documentary video template format and associated with a playlist for the user to view.

The system includes a video search engine, software installed on search engine site, social media and video templates. The method and system enables a user to create one or more video template based on different topics of interest and video attributes. For example, a teacher can create a documentary video template with specific attributes such as video length and topics. Students may have to research on different locations or places but the format of the video created remains of the same type. The video template can be shared using social media with other users in community. The user can also share the playlist representing the assembly of video segments into a contiguous video. The video template can also be made available to users by a video searc...
