Mobile IPTV is a multimedia service based on wireless networks with interactivity and mobility. Under mobile IPTV
scenarios, people can watch various contents whenever they want and even deliver their request to service providers
through the network. However, the frequent change of the wireless channel bandwidth may hinder the quality of service.
In this paper, we propose an objective video quality measure (VQM) for mobile IPTV services, which is focused on the
jitter measurement. Jitter is the result of frame repetition during the delay and one of the most severe impairments in the
video transmission via mobile channels. We first employ YUV color space to compute the duration and occurrences of
jitter and the motion activity. Then the VQM is modeled by the combination of these three factors and the result of
subjective assessment. Since the proposed VQM is based on no-reference (NR) model, it can be applied for real-time
applications. Experimental results show that the proposed VQM highly correlates to subjective evaluation.
