This paper presents a fast and effective technique for videos’ visual similarity detection and measurement using compact fixed-length signatures. The proposed technique (dominant colour graph profile DCGP) extracts and encodes the spatio-temporal information of a given video shot into a graph-based structure (tree) that fully captures this vital information. The graph structured properties are utilized to construct a fixed-length video signature of 112 decimal values per video shot. The encoded spatio-temporal information is extracted following channelling each video frame into a block-based structure, where the positions of respective blocks are tracked across video frames and encoded into multiple DCGP trees. The proposed technique provides a high matching speed (>2000 fps) and robust retrieval performance. The experiments on various standard and challenging datasets shows the framework’s robust performance, in terms of both, retrieval and computational performances.
