      Reduced the size of MB_MODE_INFO · 0de458f6
      Scott LaVarnway authored
      Moved partition_bmi and partition_count out of MB_MODE_INFO and
      placed into MACROBLOCK.  Also reduced the size of other members
      of the MB_MODE_INFO struct.  For 1080p, the memory was reduced
      by 1,209,516 bytes.  The decoder performance appeared to improve
      by 3% for the clip used.
      Note:  The main goal for this change is to improve the decoder
      performance.  The encoder will be revisited at a later date for
      further structure cleanup.

      Fix rare deadlock before loop filter · d45e5501
      Frank Galligan authored
      There was an extremely rare deadlock that happened when one thread
      was waiting to start the loop filter on frame n while the other
      threads were starting to work on frame n+1.

      Changed above and left context data layout · e85e6315
      Scott LaVarnway authored
      The main reason for the change was to reduce cycles in the token
      decoder. (~1.5% gain for 32 bit)  This layout should be more
      cache friendly.
      
      As a result of this change, the encoder had to be updated.

      Removed unnecessary MB_MODE_INFO copies · 9c7a0090
      Scott LaVarnway authored
      These copies occurred for each macroblock in the encoder and decoder.
      Thetemp MB_MODE_INFO mbmi was removed from MACROBLOCKD.  As a result,
      a large number compile errors had to be fixed.

      First modification of multi-thread decoder · ba2e107d
      Yunqing Wang authored
      This is the first modification of VP8 multi-thread decoder, which uses
      same threads to decode macroblocks and then do loopfiltering for each
      frame.
      
      Inspired by Rob Clark, synchronization was done on every 8 macroblocks
      instead of every macroblock to reduce lock contention.
      
      Comparing with the original code, this implementation gave about 15%-
      20% performance gain while decoding my test clips on a Core2 Quad
      platform (Linux).
      
      The work is not done yet.
      
      Test on other platforms are needed.

      Swap alt/gold/new/last frame buffer ptrs instead of copying. · 0ce39012
      Fritz Koenig authored
      At the end of the decode, frame buffers were being copied.
      The frames are not updated after the copy, they are just
      for reference on later frames.  This change allows multiple
      references to the same frame buffer instead of copying it.
      
      Changes needed to be made to the encoder to handle this.  The
      encoder is still doing frame buffer copies in similar places
      where pointer reference could be done.

      Change bitreader to use a larger window. · c17b62e1
      Timothy B. Terriberry authored
      Change bitreading functions to use a larger window which is refilled less
       often.
      
      This makes it cheap enough to do bounds checking each time the window is
       refilled, which avoids the need to copy the input into a large circular
       buffer.
      This uses less memory and speeds up the total decode time by 1.6% on an ARM11,
       2.8% on a Cortex A8, and 2.2% on x86-32, but less than 1% on x86-64.
      
      Inlining vp8dx_bool_decoder_fill() has a big penalty on x86-32, as does moving
       the refill loop to the front of vp8dx_decode_bool().
      However, having the refill loop between computation of the split values and
       the branch in vp8_decode_mb_tokens() is a big win on ARM (presumably due to
       memory latency and code size: refilling after normalization duplicates the
       code in the DECODE_AND_BRANCH_IF_ZERO and DECODE_AND_LOOP_IF_ZERO cases.
      Unfortunately, refilling at the end of vp8dx_bool_decoder_fill() and at the
       beginning of each decode step in vp8_decode_mb_tokens() means the latter
       requires an extra refill at the end.
      Platform-specific versions could avoid the problem, but would require most of
       detokenize.c to be duplicated.

      Remove secondary mv clamping from decode stage · 3085025f
      John Koleszar authored
      This patch removes the secondary MV clamping from the MV decoder. This
      behavior was consistent with limits placed on non-split MVs by the
      reference encoder, but was inconsistent with the MVs generated in the
      split case.
      
      The purpose of this secondary clamping was only to prevent crashes on
      invalid data. It was not intended to be a behaviour an encoder could or
      should rely on. Instead of doing additional clamping in a way that
      changes the entropy context, the secondary clamp is removed and the
      border handling is made implmentation specific. With respect to the
      spec, the border is treated as essentially infinite, limited only by
      the clamping performed on the near/nearest reference and the maximum
      encodable magnitude of the residual MV.
      
      This does not affect any currently produced streams.
