    Encoder loopfilter running in its own thread · 3ae24657

    In multithreaded mode the loopfilter is running in its own thread (filter level
    calculation and frame filtering). Filtering is mostly done in parallel with the
    bitstream packing. Before starting the packing the loopfilter level has
    to be calculated. Also any needed reference frame copying is done in the
    filter thread.
    
    Currently the encoder will create n+1 threads, where n > 1 is the number of
    threads specified by application  and 1 is the extra filter thread. With n = 1
    the encoder runs in single thread mode. There will never be more than n threads
    running concurrently.
