Example Video

We provide an example video, which can be used to get familiar with the VideoTagger interface.

As an example, we use the video here by Elena Makarov which is under the "Creative Commons / Non-Commercial No Derivatives" licence. You can download the video from Vimeo or download the example project from here .

1. Re-encode the video

(If you are using the project data, you can skip this step.)

  1. Click on the project button on the buttom left.
  2. Select folder with video as source path
  3. Select empty folder as destination path
  4. Press create project

2. Select video

  1. Open File Settings Tab, by clicking on the file button on the buttom left of the center group.
  2. Select folder with re-encoded video (you do only need to select the folder not a specifcc file)
  3. Press the run button on the bottom right.

3. Running/browsing video

  1. Once the video is opened, you can use the F keys to navigate. F6 and F7 are for step-wise navigation (backwards and forwards respectively). In OSX the F keys are usually masked with system functions and you need to keep the fn key pressed to access the F key functionality. To change this behaviour in OSX, please follow the instructions on the Apple support center.

4. Adding annotations

You can add a new annotation by moving the mouse curser into the video and using left mouse click to draw a new bounding box. You open a new annotation with a right mouse click. It starts recording the mouse location for each frame that is accessed until you close the annotation with a second right mouse click.
