This paper deals with the basic requirements that should be fulfilledby a technique for segmenting video sequences in coding applications. The specific problems of coding-oriented video segmentation are analyzed. This way intra-frame and inter-frame segmentation approaches are studied. In the inter-frame mode, the problems of temporal label coherence and connectivity in the coding framework are discussed and solutions are presented.
