vdetlib - Python library for object detection in videos


The vdetlib python library serves to detection objects in videos. It was originally developed for the ImageNet VID challenge introduced in ILSVRC2015. It contains components such as region proposal, still-image object detection, generic object tracking, spatial max-pooling and temporal convolution.

The T-CNN framework contains many tools that utilizes vdetlib. Please checkout that repository if you are interested.
