Technology

Low Quality Mobile Video

In  developing  countries,  many  would-be  mobile  internet users    perceive    downloadable    video    content    as    too expensive. Aggressively degrading this video could reduce its file size and therefore its cost. The studies presented here explore  extreme  cases  of  this  quality/cost  trade-off  for mobile  phone  users  in  urban  India.  A  series  of  online studies tested the effects of manipulating a video’s content, bit rate, frame rate, and audio quality on quality ratings and enjoyment.  Results  show  that  video  quality  and  thus  file size can be greatly reduced with relatively little decrease in these outcomes. A field experiment with low-income users in urban India explored consumers’ choices when presented with  a  trade-off  between  video  quantity  and  quality  and found  that  nearly  one-third  selected  a  lower  quality  video for the benefit of more video  content. Results suggest that offering   lower-quality   videos   to   bandwidth-constrained users  could  provide  monetary  savings  with  only  minimal reduction in consumer satisfaction. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Oeldorf-Hirsch-NordiCHI2012-LowQualityMobileVideo.pdf [www.microsoft.com]
