With the rapid development of deep learning techniques, image saliency deep models trained solely by spatial information have occasionally achieved detection performance for video data comparable to that of the models trained by both spatial and temporal information. However, due to the lesser consideration of temporal information, the image saliency deep models may become fragile in the video sequences dominated by temporal information. Thus, the most recent video saliency detection approaches have adopted the network architecture starting with a spatial deep model that is followed by an elaborately designed temporal deep model. However, such methods easily encounter the performance bottleneck arising from the single stream learning methodology, so the overall detection performance is largely determined by the spatial deep model. In sharp contrast to the current mainstream methods, this paper proposes a novel plug-and-play scheme to weakly retrain a pretrained image saliency deep model for video data by using the newly sensed and coded temporal information. Thus, the retrained image saliency deep model will be able to maintain temporal saliency awareness, achieving much improved detection performance. Moreover, our method is simple yet effective for adapting any off-the-shelf pre-trained image saliency deep model to obtain high-quality video saliency detection. Additionally, both the data and source code of our method are publicly available.
