Now a days, the Data Engineering becoming emerging trend to discover knowledge from web audio-visual data such as- YouTube videos, Yahoo Screen, Face Book videos etc. Different categories of web video are being shared on such social websites and are being used by the billions of users all over the world. The uploaded web videos will have different kind of metadata as attribute information of the video data. The metadata attributes defines the contents and features/characteristics of the web videos conceptually. Hence, accomplishing web video mining by extracting features of web videos in terms of metadata is a challenging task. In this work, effective attempts are made to classify and predict the metadata features of web videos such as length of the web videos, number of comments of the web videos, ratings information and view counts of the web videos using data mining algorithms such as Decision tree J48 and navie Bayesian algorithms as a part of web video mining. The results of Decision tree J48 and navie Bayesian classification models are analyzed and compared as a step in the process of knowledge discovery from web videos.
