Implicit or automated tagging of videos using emotions help recommendation and retrieval systems to improve their performance. The analysis and evaluations directions in this thesis are twofold: first, methodology and results of emotion recognition methods employed to detect emotion in response to videos are presented. Second, methodology and results of emotional understanding of multimedia using content analysis are provided. In conclusion, promising results have been obtained in emotional tagging of videos.
