Let's simplify this to a decision problem to have a start.

Let's suppose we have n SRT-files with different time-stamps, and one is a perfect match to a given soundtrack.

Now we want to rank which ones fit best. (That's actually a real life scenario)

With SRT-files I can easily tell sequences of non-speech gaps, like here 1.3 secs between 00:05:15,300 and 00:05:16,400

1 00:05:00,400 --> 00:05:15,300 This is an example of a subtitle. 2 00:05:16,400 --> 00:05:25,300 This is an example of a subtitle - 2nd subtitle.

I could check how the gaps of those n SRTs overlap with "silent" passages in the soundtrack (e.g an XOR metric) and rank the SRTs by proximity.

Question: how can I technically get the timestamps of silent passages of a soundtrack?

Let's define silent as falling under a certain volume's threshold after filtering frequencies.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
