Learning algorithms that harmonize standardized video similarity tools and an integrated system are presented. The learning algorithms extract exemplars reflecting time courses of video frames. There were five types of such clustering methods. Among them, this paper chooses a method called time-partition pairwise nearest-neighbor because of its reduced complexity. On the similarity comparison among videos whose lengths vary, the M-distance that can absorb the difference of the exemplar cardinalities is utilized both for global and local matching. Given the order-aware clustering and the M-distance comparison, system designers can build a basic similar-video retrieval system. This paper promotes further enhancement on the exemplar similarity that matches the video signature tools for the multimedia content description interface by ISO/IEC. This development showed the ability of the similarity ranking together with the detection of plagiarism of video scenes. Precision-recall curves showed a high performance in this experiment.
