      correct quantizer initialization · 63fc44df
      John Koleszar authored
      The encoder was not correctly catching transitions in the quantizer
      deltas. If a delta_q was set, then the quantizer would be reinitialized
      on every frame, but if they transitioned to 0, the quantizer would
      not be reinitialized, leading to a encode-decode mismatch.
      This bug was triggered by commit 999e155f, which sets a Y2 delta Q
      for very low base Q levels.

      Delay auto key frame insertion in realtime configuration · e5904f2d
      Attila Nagy authored
      Whe auto keyframe insertion is enabled and conditions are right (scene change)
      the encoder can decide to insert a key frame and does a re-encoding. This can
      introduce extra latency. In RT mode we do not do the re-encoding of the current
      frame but force the next frame to key frame.

      Possible bug in vp8cx_encode_intra_macro_block · 4a15e557
      Scott LaVarnway authored
      vp8_pick_intra4x4mby_modes uses the passed in distortion
      for an early breakout.  The best distortion was never saved
      and the distortion for TM_PRED was always used.

      change the threshold of DC check for encode breakout · 8f279596
      Yaowu Xu authored
      Previously, the DC check is to make sure there is no code-able
      DC shift for quantizer Q0, which has been verified rather
      conservative. This commit changes the criteria to have two
      components, DC and AC, to address the conservativeness. First,
      it checks if all AC energy is enough to contribute a single
      non-zero quantized AC coefficient. Second, for DC, the decision
      to skip further considers two possible scenarios: 1. There is
      no code-able 2nd order DC coefficient at all; 2 The residue is
      relatively flat, but the uniform DC change is very small, i.e.
      less than 1/2 gray level per pixel.
      Comparing to previous criteria, the new criteria is about 10%
      to 15% faster in encoding time with a very small quality loss.
      (threshold ~1000 and quality range 33db-45db)
      It should be noted that this commit enables "automatic" static
      threshold for encodebreakout if a non-zero small value is passed
      in to encoder.

      Changed condition for using RD in Intra Mode · e9f513d7
      Adrian Grange authored
      The condition for using RD when selecting the intra coding mode
      for a MB is that the RD flag is set AND we're not in real-time
      Previously the code used RD if either the RD flag was set OR
      we were not using real-time mode.

      Adds "armvX-none-rvct" targets · 11a222f5
      Tero Rintaluoma authored
      Adds following targets to configure script to support RVCT compilation
      without operating system support (for Profiler or bare metal images).

       - armv6-none-rvct
       - armv7-none-rvct
      To strip OS specific parts from the code "os_support"-config was added
      to script and CONFIG_OS_SUPPORT flag is used in the code to exclude OS
      specific parts such as OS specific includes and function calls for
      timers and threads etc. This was done to enable RVCT compilation for
      profiling purposes or running the image on bare metal target with
      Removed separate AREA directives for READONLY data in armv6 and neon
      assembly files to fix the RVCT compilation. Otherwise
      "ldr <reg>, =label" syntax would have been needed to prevent linker
      errors. This syntax is not supported by older gnu assemblers.

      cap the best quantizer for 2nd order DC · 999e155f
      Yaowu Xu authored
      This commit also removes artificial RDMULT cap for low quantizers.
      The intention is to address some abnormal behavior of mode selections
      at the low quantizer end, where many macroblocks were coded with
      SPLITMV with all partitions using same motion vector including (0,0).
      This change improves the compression quality substantially for high
      quality encodings in both PSNR and SSIM terms. Overall effect on
      mid/low rate range is also positive for all metrics, but smaller
      in magnitude.

      Incorrect bit allocation in forced KF groups. · 336aa0b7
      Paul Wilkins authored
      The old 2 pass code estimated error distribution when coding a
      forced (by interval) key frame. The result of this was that in some
      cases, when allocating bits at the GF group level within a KF
      group there was either a glut of bits or starvation of bits at the end
      of the KF group.
      Added code to rescan and get the correct data once the position of
      a forced key frame has been determined.
