I am often asked, "Zach, AlchemyAPI sure does some nifty work with text and images. Can you handle video?" As confidently as I can, I take a deep breath and calmly reply, "No".
Well ladies and gentlemen (lizards, robots, what have you), today I am tickled to announce my answer has changed! The next time the aforementioned question is lobbed my way, I shall exuberantly proclaim "Not really".
"But in a way...yes."
My hoopy colleagues Nicholas Lineback and Devin Harper (of AlchemyVision fame) have applied their gifted gourds to the challenge, and with some clever Pythoning have created a tool to break down videos frame by frame, using AlchemyAPI image tagging to identify the content within. In an effort to pretty much make your day, these generous souls have agreed to share the product of their hard work with you, our beloved developer community.
