      Combined motion compensation with scaled predictors · 77f88e97
      John Koleszar authored
      This patch extends the previous support for using references of a
      different resolution in ZEROMV mode to all inter prediction modes.
      Subpixel based best-mv scoring is disabled when the reference frame
      differs in resolution from the current frame.

      Spatial resamping of ZEROMV predictors · eb939f45
      John Koleszar authored
      This patch allows coding frames using references of different
      resolution, in ZEROMV mode. For compound prediction, either
      reference may be scaled.
      
      To test, I use the resize_test and enable WRITE_RECON_BUFFER
      in vp9_onyxd_if.c. It's also useful to apply this patch to
      test/i420_video_source.h:
      
        --- a/test/i420_video_source.h
        +++ b/test/i420_video_source.h
        @@ -93,6 +93,7 @@ class I420VideoSource : public VideoSource {
      
           virtual void FillFrame() {
             // Read a frame from input_file.
        +    if (frame_ != 3)
             if (fread(img_->img_data, raw_sz_, 1, input_file_) == 0) {
               limit_ = frame_;
             }
      
      This forces the frame that the resolution changes on to be coded
      with no motion, only scaling, and improves the quality of the
      result.

      Optimize vp9_dc_only_idct_add_c function · 35bc02c6
      Yunqing Wang authored
      Wrote SSE2 version of vp9_dc_only_idct_add_c function. In order to
      improve performance, clipped the absolute diff values to [0, 255].
      This allowed us to keep the additions/subtractions in 8 bits.
      Test showed an over 2% decoder performance increase.

      Refactor inter recon functions to support scaling · 6a4f708c
      John Koleszar authored
      Ensure that all inter prediction goes through a common code path
      that takes scaling into account. Removes a bunch of duplicate
      1st/2nd predictor code. Also introduces a 16x8 mode for 8x8
      MVs, similar to the 8x4 trick we were doing before. This has an
      unexpected effect with EIGHTTAP_SMOOTH, so it's disabled in that
      case for now.

      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      Since addition of the larger-scale transforms (16x16, 32x32), these
      don't give a benefit at macroblock-sizes anymore. At superblock-sizes,
      2nd-order transform was never used over the larger transforms. Future
      work should test whether there is a benefit for that use case.

      enable bitstream lossless support · 17db5d00
      Yaowu Xu authored
      1. Added a bit in frame header to  to indicate if a frame is encoded
      in lossless mode, so decoder does not make the decision based on Q0
      2. Minor changes to make sure that lossy coding works same as when
      the lossless experiment is not enabled.
      3. Renamed function pointers for transforms to be consistent, using
      prefix fwd_txm and inv_txm for forward and inverse respectively
      
      To encode in lossless mode, using "--lossless=1 --min-q=0 --max-q=0"
      with vpxenc.

      Initial support for resolution changes on P-frames · 393b4856
      John Koleszar authored
      Allows inter-frames to change resolution. Currently these are
      almost equivalent to keyframes, as only intra prediction modes
      are allowed, but without the other context resets that occur on
      keyframes.

      [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.

      Adding a frame parallel decoding mode · dfd89f2e

      Adds a flag to disable features that would inhibit frame parallel
      decoding. This includes backward adaptation and MV sorting based
      on search in ref frame buffer.
      
      Also includes some minor clean-ups.

      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.

      Generalize and increase frame coding contexts · 4b65837b
      John Koleszar authored
      Previously there were two frame coding contexts tracked, one for normal
      frames and one for alt-ref frames. Generalize this by signalling the
      context to use in the bitstream, rather than tieing it to the alt ref
      refresh bit. Also increase the number of contexts available to 4, which
      may be useful for temporal scalability.

      Remove lst_fb_idx, gld_fb_idx, alt_fb_idx, refresh_last_frame,

      Updates to active_ref 2 signal mode context switches, vestigial from
