Several computer vision applications such as e-learning, video editing, video compression, video-on-demand and surveillance etc. are popular in recent days. Most of the applications need videos to be retrieved and processed regularly. First and foremost step towards video retrieval and management is keyframe extraction. The perfect identification of shot transition boundaries is trivial in extracting keyframes. In present article, a framework for shot transition detection and keyframe extraction have been proposed. The proposed method is efficient, simple and does not require supervision which makes it attractive. The proposed method establishes the shot transition boundaries by estimating feature similarity (FSIM) between gradient magnitudes of consecutive frames. Then the frame with the highest mean and standard deviation is chosen as keyframe to that shot. In any situation if one feature fails to establish shot transition boundary another feature may succeed in establishment of shot transition boundary at proper frame locations of video. The proposed algorithm is tested on four different datasets, among them one is developed by us, two are well known standard datasets to evaluate keyframe extraction algorithm and the other one is standard surveillance video dataset. All the datasets are publicly available. Performance evaluation of the method is done in terms of Figure of merit, Detection percentage, Accuracy and Missing factor. The experimental results prove that the proposed method outperforms other state-of-art methods.
