Help detecting where a video has been cut up/ jump cuts

Hello, I have been using openCV for a while now, and want to make an application that can detect if a video has been cut up and put back together. Using a test video of myself sitting resonably still, and talking into the camera, I can see that I jump about unnaturally at the point where there is a cut. I am wondering if anyone knows how where to start in writing some software that could flag these unnatural movements when there is a cut.

Thanks, Niall

Have a look at this:

The author claims that with proper setting of thresholds one can even detect jump cuts. Normal cuts and blank frames detection is easier and should work better.

Thanks, that worked great. I used content detector with the threshold turned down very low.
