Experimental data are presented that clearly demonstrate the scope of application of peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) as a video quality metric. It is shown that as long as the video content and the codec type are not changed, PSNR is a valid quality measure. However, when the content is changed, correlation between subjective quality and PSNR is highly reduced. Hence PSNR cannot be a reliable method for assessing the video quality across different video contents.
