  • Patent number: 8520085
    Abstract: A method of full-frame video stabilization with a polyline-fitted camcorder path is disclosed. The regions was first considered of interest in the video to estimate which regions or objects the user wants to capture, and then use a polyline to estimate a new stable camcorder motion path while avoiding the user's interested regions or objects being cut out. Then, the dynamic and static missing areas caused by frame alignment from other frames were filled to keep the same resolution and quality as the original video. Furthermore, the discontinuous regions were smoothed by using a three-dimensional Poisson-based method. After the above automatic operations, a full-frame stabilized video could be achieved and the important regions and objects could also be preserved.

  • Patent number: 8364026
    Abstract: A method in a video playback system for playing a video with a specific playback speed in accordance with a video feature and a playback record is described. The system allows the playback record records a preceding playback speed corresponding to the video previously played to learn user preferences for a user. This makes the specific playback speed more suitable for the user without any adjustment. In addition, the system also allows the user input a resetting playback speed to actively adjust the specific playback speed if the original specific playback speed is not suitable for the user.
