Abstract: The smartphone is now an essential personal electronic device. Multimedia is prevalent and the preferred content on the smartphone and enormous amount of videos are shared on the phone. Diverse videos are downloaded and watched everywhere easily with the smartphone. QoE (Quality of Experience) is examined by measuring picture quality, continuity, and overall satisfaction in this study to assess users’ experiences with multimedia in stationary and walking usage contexts. Encoding factors such as frame rate and resolution directly affect the quality of videos. Proper settings of encoding factors were not, however, studied in the actual context. Smartphone owners watch videos while sitting, walking, and standing in various environments. Diverse settings of encoding elements for digital videos were compared in static and dynamic situations and efficient levels of these settings are suggested.
Keywords: Encoding, multimedia, QoE, smartphone, usage context.
