Abstract


Today, consumers use a smartphone device to display the media contents for work and entertainment purposes, as well as watching online video. Online video streaming is the main cause that consume smartphone’s energy quickly. To overcome this problem, smartphone’s energy management is crucial. Thus, a hybrid energy-aware profiler is proposed. Basically, a profiler will monitor and manage the energy consumption in the smartphone devices. The hybrid energy-aware profiler will set up a protocol preference of both the user and the device. Then, it will estimates the energy consumption in smartphone. However, saving energy alone can contribute to the Quality of Experience (QoE) neglection, thus the proposed solution takes into account the client QoE. Even though there are several existing energy-aware profilers that have been developed to manage energy use in smartphones however, most energy-aware profilers does not consider QoE at the same time. The proposed solution consider both, the performance of the hybrid energy-aware profiler is compared with the baseline energy models against a variation of content adaptation according to the pre-defined variables. Three types of variables were determined; resolution, frame rate and energy consumption in smartphone devices. In this area, QoE subjective methods based on MOS (Mean Opinion Score) are the most commonly used approaches for defining and quantifying real video quality. Nevertheless, although these approaches have been established to consistently quantify users’ amounts of approval, they do not adequately realize which are the criteria of video attribute that important. In this paper, we conducted an experiment with a certain devices to measures user’s QoE and energy usage of video attribute in smartphone devices. Our results demonstrate that the list of possible solution is a relevant and useful video attribute that satify the users.
