A Video Quality Testing : Review of Human Visual Aspect

Andi Danang Krismawan, Lekso Budi Handoko


Various types of video player applications have been widely used by the community. The emergence of the latest version and a variety of features make people need to make a choice to use a video player application with a good visual level. The type of video that is often played is a file with an MP4 extension. This file type is not heavy but is usually intended for long file durations such as movies. In this paper, we will use a dataset in the form of a movie file with an MP4 extension. The video player applications used include VLC, Quick time, Potplayer, KMPLayer, Media Player Classic (MPC), DivX Player, ACG Player, Kodi, MediaMonkey. Through various empirical calculations, such as Mean Square Error (MSE), Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR), Structutral Similarity Index Measurement (SSIM), Threshold F-ratio, Visual Signal to Noise Ratio (VSNR), Visual Quality Metric (VQM), and Multiscale - Structutral Similarity Index Measurement (MS-SSIM) has analyzed the visual capabilities of each video player application. Experimental results prove that the KMPlayer application gets the best visual results compared to other selected applications.
