Most of the existing video quality assessment models are developed at frame or sequence level, which can not accurately describe the impact of packet loss on the local regions in one frame. In this paper, we propose an error sensitivity model to evaluate the impact of a single packet loss. We also make full use of the spatio-temporal correlation of the video and analyze a set of features that directly impact the perceptual quality of videos, based on the specific situation of video packet loss. With the aid of the support vector regression (SVR), these features are used to predict the error sensitivity of the local region. The proposed model is tested on six video sequences. Experimental results show that the proposed model predicts sensitivity of videos to different packet loss cases with certain reasonable accuracy, and provides good generalization ability, which turns out outperform the state-of-art image and video quality assessment methods.
