I was wondering if there is an easy way to detect presenter (speaker) changes from a video clip. I have some presentation / panel / seminar type videos, and want to add markers whenever the speaker changes in the stream. It can be when someone from the audience asks a question, or when another panel starts talking.

you might want to reword your question. Maybe use the term presenter or something –  Travis Dtfsu Crum Mar 11 '13 at 15:59
I guess that makes it less confusing? Made the change, thanks. –  mcpanic Mar 15 '13 at 3:57
do you mean automated detection? That's going to be tricky... –  Dr Mayhem Sep 19 '13 at 15:53
