Adaptive streaming is fast becoming the most widely used method for video delivery to the end users over the internet. The ITU-T P.1203 standard is the first standardized quality of experience model for audiovisual HTTP-based adaptive streaming. This recommendation has been trained and validated for H.264 and resolutions up to and including full-HD. The paper provides an extension for the existing standardized short-term video quality model mode 0 for new codecs i.e., H.265, VP9 and AV1 and resolutions larger than full-HD (e.g. UHD-1). The extension is based on two subjective video quality tests. In the tests, in total 13 different source contents of 10 seconds each were used. These sources were encoded with resolutions ranging from 360p to 2160p and various quality levels using the H.265, VP9 and AV1 codecs. The subjective results from the two tests were then used to derive a mapping/correction function for P.1203.1 to handle new codecs and resolutions. It should be noted that the standardized model was not re-trained with the new subjective data, instead only a mapping/correction function was derived from the two subjective test results so as to extend the existing standard to the new codecs and resolutions.
