Abstract: Vibro represents a powerful tool for interactive video retrieval and browsing and is the winner of the Video Browser Showdown 2022. Following the saying of "never change a winning system" we did not change any of the underlying concepts nor added any new features. Instead, we focused on improving the three existing cornerstones of the software, which are text-to-image search, image-to-image search and browsing results with 2D sorted maps. The changes to these three parts are summarized in this paper, and in addition, an overview of the AVS-mode of vibro is given.
