      Add VP9_GET_REFERENCE control · b3c350a1
      John Koleszar authored
      This is like VP8_COPY_REFERENCE, but returns a pointer to the reference
      frame rather than a copy of it. This is useful when the application
      doesn't know what the size of the reference is, as is the case when
      scaling is in effect.

      Add support for tile rows. · 89a206ef
      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      These allow sending partial bitstream packets over the network before
      encoding a complete frame is completed, thus lowering end-to-end
      latency. The tile-rows are not independent.

      [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.

      Pack invisible frames without lengths · 64bcffc1
      John Koleszar authored
      Modify the decoder to return the ending position of the bool decoder and
      use that as the starting position for the next frame.
      
      The constant-space algorithm for parsing the appended frame lengths is
      O(n^2), which is a potential DoS concern if n is unbounded. Revisit
      the appended lengths for use as partition lengths when multipartition
      support is added.
      
      In addition, this allows decoding of raw streams outside of a container
      without additional framing information, though it's insufficient to
      be able to remux said stream into a container.

      Packing Altref along with succeeding frame and length encoding frames · bc9670ee
      Vignesh Venkatasubramanian authored
      The altref frame is packed along with the next P frame. So that
      outside of the codec there are now only two types of frames P and I.
      Also, now it is one frame in and one frame out with respect to the
      codec. Apart from that, all the frames are length encoded with the
      length of each frame appended to the frame itself. There are
      two categories of frames and each of them will look as follows:
      
        - Packed frames (an altref along with the succeeding p frame)
          - altref_frame_data | altref_lenngth | frame_data | length
        - Unpacked frames (all frames other than the above)
          - frame_data | length

      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.

      Remove threading dependencies with --disable-multithread · 8df79e9d

      Avoid a pthreads dependency via pthread_once() when compiled with
      --disable-multithread.
      
      In addition, this synchronization is disabled for Win32 as well, even
      though we can be sure that the required primatives exist, so that the
      requirements on the application when built with --disable-multithread
      are consistent across platforms.
      
      Users using libvpx built with --disable-multithread in a multithreaded
      context should provide their own synchronization. Updated the
      documentation to vpx_codec_enc_init_ver() and vpx_codec_dec_init_ver()
      to note this requirement. Moved the RTCD initialization call to match
      this description, as previously it didn't happen until the first

      to reinitialize the codec instace (for instance, if no target is

      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
