Abstract

With the proliferation of online video, measuring the quality of the video service has become a vital aspect for improving user’s experience. Recent work shows that measurable quality metrics such as buffering, bitrate, and video resolutions impact user’s experience, but none of them reveal the real relationships between these metrics and user’s actual experience. This paper attempts to solve the problem above. We use IQIYI as the sample, and our large-scale dataset consists of 7 days real Internet traffic in a northern city of China. We quantify user’s experience at per-video level (or view). Using Apache Spark, we extract some video events and calculate several quality metrics. In order to investigate the relationship between the metrics and user’s experience, we use the FP-Growth algorithm to mining the implicit association rules and get some interesting results.
