Internet simplified digital data transferring. This data needs to be secured; so securing digital data becomes an important concern. Steganography provides security for data by inserting it into a cover and concealing it. In this paper, a steganography algorithm was introduced. This algorithm used the stationary wavelet transform (SWT) and اhybrid-matrix decomposition techniques, singular value decomposition (SVD) and QR factorization to conceal a video in another video. The algorithm performance was measured with reference to the peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) and structural similarity index measure (SSIM) for the cover and the secret videos. The algorithm successfully hid a video in another cover video and both are of the same size; the hiding capacity was 100%. The algorithm achieved a SSIM that reached 0.97 and a high PSNR value that reached 68.8 proving that the imperceptibility of the proposed algorithm is very high. The comparative analysis shows that the suggested algorithm achieved higher imperceptibility than the other state-of-the-art algorithms regarding the average PSNR. The enhanced version of the proposed method was more robust against different types of attacks.
