Method and System for Inferring Quality of Service (QoS) for a Video

Disclosed is a method and system for inferring Quality of Service (QoS) for a video. The method and system enables a service provider to monitor a sentiment of an end user. The service provider develops a broadcast profile of programs that the end user is most likely to watch based on the sentiment of the end user and additional social attributes such as, but not limited to, a membership of a football club.

The service provider is able to manage underlying network and broadcast resources in such a manner that the end user who is more likely to react negatively to a poor Quality of Experience (QoE) receives more resources. Alternately, the end user who is less likely to yield a negative reaction receives fewer resources.

The method and system provides a visual cue that enables the end user to report the end user's sentiments. A visual overlay enables the end user to rate the end

user's sentiment and then the sentiment is transmitted to the service provider. For example, a happy face means the QoE is optimal and there are no issues, a neutral face means the QoE is acceptable and some small issues are observed and an unhappy face means the QoE is poor.

Fig.1 illustrates creation of the broadcast profile by the end user.
