The research domain on the Quality of Experience (QoE) of 2D
video streaming has been well established. However, a new video
format is emerging and gaining popularity and availability: VR 360-
degree video. The processing and transmission of 360-degree videos
brings along new challenges such as large bandwidth requirements
and the occurrence of different distortions. The viewing experience
is also substantially different from 2D video, it offers more
interactive freedom on the viewing angle but can also be more
demanding and cause cybersickness. Further research on the QoE
of 360-videos specifically is thus required. The goal of this study is
to complement earlier research by (Tran, Ngoc, Pham, Jung, and
Thank, 2017) testing the effects of quality degradation, freezing, and
content on the QoE of 360-videos. Data will be gathered through
subjective tests where participants watch degraded versions of 360-
videos through an HMD. After each video they will answer
questions regarding their quality perception, experience, perceptual
load, and cybersickness. Results of the first part show overall rather
low QoE ratings and it decreases even more as quality is degraded
and freezing events are added. Cyber sickness was found not to be
an issue.
