To maximise the benefits from data compression, it would be advantageous to develop algorithms that do not require decompression to extract relevant information for post processing. In this paper, a novel technique for extracting variance is proposed for MPEG-2 compressed video using Parseval's theorem. Results show that the estimated variance closely matches with the actual variance. Furthermore, this technique is applied to identify scene changes in the compressed domain
