Generate summary of any video

Generate a summary of any video through its subtitles.

This is the community driven approach towards the summarization by the OpenGenus community.

Installing vidsum

In order to install vidsum, simply clone the repository to a local directory. You can do this by running the following commands:

$ git clone

$ cd vidsum/code

Please note that vidsum requires the following packages to be installed:

If you do not have these packages installed, then you can do so by running this command:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt


To generate summary of a video file sample.mp4 with subtitle file :

python -i sample.mp4 -s

To summarize a YouTube video from its url:

python -u <url>

If you want to remain the downloaded YouTube video and subtitles:

python -u <url> -k
