I am looking for any advice on programs or languages that I could use to input a video file and break it down into source code that I can establish parameters to output either statistics or a report.
For Example: If I wanted to input a movie to count how many times a person laughed in the movie.
Another Example: To generate an output on which directions the actors typically faced in the movie.
I know this is a generic request, but I am still trying to formulate all my needs into a proper way to express what I require. Any assistance that anyone can give would be much appreciated.
