Video Storytelling is a dataset for generating text story/summarization for videos containing social events. It consists of 105 videos from four categories: birthday, camping, Christmas and wedding. For each video, we provide at least 5 human-written stories.

  • Videos are contained in the .tar file with their corresponding category name.
  • Text stories are contained in Text.tar.
  • In each txt file, the first line is the video id. The start and end time (in seconds) of each sentence is also given.
  • test_id.txt provides the id for videos in the test set

Please cite the following paper if you use the Video Storytelling dataset in your work (papers, articles, reports, books, software, etc):
