Yes, when I read your previous email, that was my thought regarding
scene change detection as well. There are others already in ffmpeg, (or
perhaps I was looking at the one in the tool "motion"?), I believe.
They ideally don't just check for overall brightness change, but over
several squares / blocks and take that into consideration.


- There's a quite high chance that a scene change with a totally
  different picture layout has approx. the same average brightness as
  the scene before.

- A strong change in only one or two of e.g. 100 rectangles should not
  indicate a scene change (while it might indicate motion, different
  concept there).
