Now-a-days, videos can be easily recorded and forged with user-friendly editing tools. These videos can be shared on social networks to make false propaganda. During the process of spatial forgery, the texture and micro-patterns of the frames become inconsistent, which can be observed in the difference of two consecutive frames. Based on this observation, a method has been proposed for detection of forged video segments and localization of forged frames. Employing the Chrominance value of Consecutive frame Difference (CCD) and Discriminative Robust Local Binary Pattern (DRLBP), a new descriptor is introduced to model the inconsistency embedded in the frames due to forgery. Support Vector Machine (SVM) is used to detect whether the pair of consecutive frames is forged. If at least one pair of consecutive frames is detected as forged, the video segment is predicted as forged and the forged frames are localized. Intensive experiments are performed to validate the performance of the method on a combined dataset of videos, which were tampered by copy-move and splicing methods. The detection accuracy on large dataset is 96.68 percent and video accuracy is 98.32 percent. The comparison shows that it outperforms the state-of-the-art methods, even through cross dataset validation.
