Adaptive bitrate (ABR) streaming is widely used for distribution of videos over the internet. In this work, we investigate how well we can predict the quality of such videos using well-known image metrics, information about the bitrate levels, and a relatively simple machine learning method. Quality assessment of ABR videos is a hard problem, but our initial results are promising. We obtain a Spearman rank order correlation of 0.88 using content-independent cross-validation.
