This paper presents the result of experimental comparison of the video quality of streamed videos using streaming devices and streaming platforms. The objective metrics considered for the comparison of these media are the Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR), Structural Similarity (SSIM), Visual Information Fidelity (VIF), Information Fidelity Criterion (IFC), and Visual Signal-to-Noise Ratio (VSNR). To determine the better platform for effective multimedia applications especially for educational

In the first two scenarios, Data video at two different settings were engaged at the encoding end and PotPlayer was used for decoding and recording of the transmitted videos. In the third and fourth scenarios, Videos were streamed via YouTube and Facebook. The aforementioned objective metrics were implemented in MATLAB R2017b for the experimental analyses and our results showed that YouTube produced streamed videos of the best quality with PNSR of 37.98, SIMM of 0.98 and VSNR of 33.12.
