      Move SVC per-frame loop from sample app into libvpx proper · 1ed0e1be
      Ivan Maltz authored
      SVC multiple layer per frame encoding is invoked with vpx_svc_init and
      vpx_svc_encode. These interfaces are designed to be invoked from ffmpeg.
      Additional improvements:
      - make dummy frame handling a bit more explicit
      - fixed bug with single layer encodes
      - track individual frame sizes and psnrs instead of averages
      - parameterized quantizer, 16th scalefactors, more logging,
      - enabled single layer encodes to generate baseline
      - include new mode for 3 layer I frame with 5 total layers

      Support a constant quality mode in VP9 · e378a89b
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Adds a new end-usage option for constant quality encoding in vpx. This
      first version implemented for VP9, encodes all regular inter frames
      using the quality specified in the --cq-level= option, while encoding
      all key frames and golden/altref frames at a quality better than that.
      
      The current performance on derfraw300 is +0.910% up from bitrate control,
      but achieved without multiple recode loops per frame.
      
      The decision for qp for each altref/golden/key frame will be improved
      in subsequent patches based on better use of stats from the first pass.
      Further, the qp for regular inter frames may also be varied around the
      provided cq-level.

      The minimum unit for segmentation in the segment map

      traditionally refers to a 16x16 region.

      Extension of segmentation to 8 segments. · 31ee193a
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Also some further simplification following removal
      of top node code.
      
      There is an issue in regards to the shared file vp8cx.h
      in regard to the roi_map as this interface assumes that
      there are only 4 segments. I have left the value here as
      4 for now meaning that the roi_map interface is broken
      for VP9.
      
      Note that this change would have been easier if I hadn't
      had to search for hard wire instances of the number 4
      and <= 3.

      scaling is in effect.

      [WIP] Add column-based tiling. · 1407bdc2
      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      This patch adds column-based tiling. The idea is to make each tile
      independently decodable (after reading the common frame header) and
      also independendly encodable (minus within-frame cost adjustments in
      the RD loop) to speed-up hardware & software en/decoders if they used
      multi-threading. Column-based tiling has the added advantage (over
      other tiling methods) that it minimizes realtime use-case latency,
      since all threads can start encoding data as soon as the first SB-row
      worth of data is available to the encoder.
      
      There is some test code that does random tile ordering in the decoder,
      to confirm that each tile is indeed independently decodable from other
      tiles in the same frame. At tile edges, all contexts assume default
      values (i.e. 0, 0 motion vector, no coefficients, DC intra4x4 mode),
      and motion vector search and ordering do not cross tiles in the same
      frame.
      t log
      
      Tile independence is not maintained between frames ATM, i.e. tile 0 of
      frame 1 is free to use motion vectors that point into any tile of frame
      0. We support 1 (i.e. no tiling), 2 or 4 column-tiles.
      
      The loopfilter crosses tile boundaries. I discussed this briefly with Aki
      and he says that's OK. An in-loop loopfilter would need to do some sync
      between tile threads, but that shouldn't be a big issue.
      
      Resuls: with tiling disabled, we go up slightly because of improved edge
      use in the intra4x4 prediction. With 2 tiles, we lose about ~1% on derf,
      ~0.35% on HD and ~0.55% on STD/HD. With 4 tiles, we lose another ~1.5%
      on derf ~0.77% on HD and ~0.85% on STD/HD. Most of this loss is
      concentrated in the low-bitrate end of clips, and most of it is because
      of the loss of edges at tile boundaries and the resulting loss of intra
      predictors.
      
      TODO:
      - more tiles (perhaps allow row-based tiling also, and max. 8 tiles)?
      - maybe optionally (for EC purposes), motion vectors themselves
        should not cross tile edges, or we should emulate such borders as
        if they were off-frame, to limit error propagation to within one
        tile only. This doesn't have to be the default behaviour but could
        be an optional bitstream flag.

      Adds an error-resilient mode with test · 01cafaab
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Adds an error-resilient mode where frames can be continued
      to be decoded even when there are errors (due to network losses)
      on a prior frame. Specifically, backward updates are turned off
      and probabilities of various symbols are reset to defaults at
      the beginning of each frame. Further, the last frame's mvs are
      not used for the mv reference list, and the sorting of the
      initial list based on search on previous frames is turned off
      as well.
      
      Also adds a test where an arbitrary set of frames are skipped
      from decoding to simulate errors. The test verifies (1) that if
      the error frames are droppable - i.e. frame buffer updates have
      been turned off - there are no mismatch errors for the remaining
      frames after the error frames; and (2) if the error-frames are non
      droppable, there are not only no decoding errors but the mismatch
      PSNR between the decoder's version of the post-error frames and the
      encoder's version is at least 20 dB.

      Add lossless compression mode. · e44ee38a
      Hui Su authored
      This commit adds lossless compression capability to the experimental
      branch. The lossless experiment can be enabled using --enable-lossless
      in configure. When the experiment is enabled, the encoder will use
      lossless compression mode by command line option --lossless, and the
      decoder automatically recognizes a losslessly encoded clip and decodes
      accordingly.
      
      To achieve the lossless coding, this commit has changed the following:
          1. To encode at lossless mode, encoder forces the use of unit
      quantizer, i.e, Q 0, where effective quantization is 1. Encoder also
      disables the usage of 8x8 transform and allows only 4x4 transform;
          2. At Q 0, the first order 4x4  DCT/IDCT have been switched over
      to a pair of forward and inverse Walsh-Hadamard Transform
      (http://goo.gl/EIsfy),  with proper scaling applied to match the range
      of the original 4x4 DCT/IDCT pair;
          3. At Q 0, the second order remains to use the previous
      walsh-hadamard transform pair. However, to maintain the reversibility
      in second order transform at Q 0, scaling down is applied to first
      order DC coefficients prior to forward transform, and scaling up is
      applied to the second order output prior to quantization. Symmetric
      upscaling and downscaling are added around inverse second order
      transform;
          4. At lossless mode, encoder also disables a number of minor
      features to ensure no loss is introduced, these features includes:
              a. Trellis quantization optimization
              b. Loop filtering
              c. Aggressive zero-binning, rounding and zero-bin boosting
              d. Mode based zero-bin boosting
      
      Lossless coding test was performed on all clips within the derf set,
      to verify that the commit has achieved lossless compression for all
      clips. The average compression ratio is around 2.57 to 1.

      WebM Experimental Codec Branch Snapshot · 6035da54
      Yaowu Xu authored
      This is a code snapshot of experimental work currently ongoing for a
      next-generation codec.
      
      The codebase has been cut down considerably from the libvpx baseline.
      For example, we are currently only supporting VBR 2-pass rate control
      and have removed most of the code relating to coding speed, threading,
      error resilience, partitions and various other features.  This is in
      part to make the codebase easier to work on and experiment with, but
      also because we want to have an open discussion about how the bitstream
      will be structured and partitioned and not have that conversation
      constrained by past work.
      
      Our basic working pattern has been to initially encapsulate experiments
      using configure options linked to #IF CONFIG_XXX statements in the
      code. Once experiments have matured and we are reasonably happy that
      they give benefit and can be merged without breaking other experiments,
      we remove the conditional compile statements and merge them in.
      
      Current changes include:
      * Temporal coding experiment for segments (though still only 4 max, it
        will likely be increased).
      * Segment feature experiment - to allow various bits of information to
        be coded at the segment level. Features tested so far include mode
        and reference frame information, limiting end of block offset and
        transform size, alongside Q and loop filter parameters, but this set
        is very fluid.
      * Support for 8x8 transform - 8x8 dct with 2nd order 2x2 haar is used
        in MBs using 16x16 prediction modes within inter frames.
      * Compound prediction (combination of signals from existing predictors
        to create a new predictor).
      * 8 tap interpolation filters and 1/8th pel motion vectors.
      * Loop filter modifications.
      * Various entropy modifications and changes to how entropy contexts and
        updates are handled.
      * Extended quantizer range matched to transform precision improvements.
      
      There are also ongoing further experiments that we hope to merge in the
      near future: For example, coding of motion and other aspects of the
      prediction signal to better support larger image formats, use of larger
      block sizes (e.g. 32x32 and up) and lossless non-transform based coding
      options (especially for key frames). It is our hope that we will be
      able to make regular updates and we will warmly welcome community
      contributions.
      
      Please be warned that, at this stage, the codebase is currently slower
      than VP8 stable branch as most new code has not been optimized, and
      even the 'C' has been deliberately written to be simple and obvious,
      not fast.
      
      The following graphs have the initial test results, numbers in the
      tables measure the compression improvement in terms of percentage. The
      build has  the following optional experiments configured:
      --enable-experimental --enable-enhanced_interp --enable-uvintra
      --enable-high_precision_mv --enable-sixteenth_subpel_uv
