Search options

Search options specify the source of information the engine uses when performing a search. The following values are supported:

  • visual: Allows you to search by objects, actions, sounds, movements, places, situational events, and complex audio-visual text descriptions.
  • conversation: Allows you to find the exact point in your video where the specified word or phrase is mentioned.
  • text_in_video: Allows you to search for text that appears in your videos (OCR).



  • The search options you specify must be a subset of the indexing options used when you created the index.
  • You can specify multiple search options in conjunction with the operator parameter to broaden or narrow your search. For examples, see the Using simple queries page.
