`mse`

(*referenceVideoData*,*distortedVideoData*)[source]¶ Computes mean-squared error (MSE).

Both video inputs are compared frame-by-frame to obtain T MSE measurements.

Parameters: **referenceVideoData**: ndarrayReference video, ndarray of dimension (T, M, N, C), (T, M, N), (M, N, C), or (M, N), where T is the number of frames, M is the height, N is width, and C is number of channels.

**distortedVideoData**: ndarrayDistorted video, ndarray of dimension (T, M, N, C), (T, M, N), (M, N, C), or (M, N), where T is the number of frames, M is the height, N is width, and C is number of channels.

Returns: **mse_array**: ndarrayThe mse results, ndarray of dimension (T,), where T is the number of frames
