  "abstract": "<p>As news agencies and the public increasingly rely on User-Generated Content, content verification is vital for news producers and consumers alike.\u00a0We present a novel approach for verifying Web videos by analyzing their online context. It is based on supervised learning on contextual features: one feature set is based on an existing approach for tweet verification adapted to video comments. The other is based on video metadata, such as the video description, likes/dislikes, and uploader information.<br>\nWe evaluate both on a dataset of real and fake videos from YouTube, and demonstrate their effectiveness (F-scores: 0.82, 0.79).\u00a0We then explore their complementarity and show that under an optimal fusion scheme, the classifier would reach an F-score of 0.9. We finally study the performance of the classifier through time, as more comments accumulate, emulating a real-time verification setting.</p>",
