In this paper we propose a video retrieval system using texture features from a hand-drawn sketch. There is currently a lot of video content on the Internet due in part to the development of video-sharing Web sites, and sometimes users are unable to narrow the options down to the desired video because there is simply too much content to choose from. We should be able to solve this problem with a retrieval technique that uses internal movie features. Previously, our laboratory proposed a video retrieval system using three internal movie features and a sketch query. In the current study, our aim is to improve the retrieval precision by adding a new feature derived from texture.
