Abstract: Cuckoo search algorithm is an efficiently designed algorithm for optimization based on the behavior of blood parasitism of Cuckoo species. The main advantages of Cuckoo Search algorithm are its simplicity, less computational time and efficiency. With said advantages, a novel method on video watermarking using Cuckoo search algorithm in DWT-SVD transform domain is proposed. SSIM, BER are used for fitness function in optimization function. The method proposed uses secret share method to achieve more security of watermark. The experimental results prove that the proposed video watermarking method provides good imperceptibility and more robust to attacks compared to few related methods.
