What is Video Explicit Content Detection ? 

A video explicit content detection API is a type of technology that is specifically designed to identify and classify potentially inappropriate or offensive content in video materials. This can include videos that contain explicit language, violence, or sexually suggestive content.

Video explicit content detection APIs typically use machine learning algorithms and other advanced techniques to analyze the visual and audio content of a video and determine whether it contains explicit material. They may also analyze other features of the video, such as its metadata, to help determine its appropriateness.

Video explicit content detection APIs are often used in a variety of applications, such as social media platforms, online marketplaces, and content management systems, to automatically identify and flag potentially inappropriate or offensive video content. This can help ensure that such content is not made available to a wider audience or is properly restricted or removed.
