      Rework pred pixel buffer system in non-RD coding mode · 7bea8c59
      Jingning Han authored
      This commit makes the inter prediction buffer system to support
      hybrid partition search. It reduces the runtime of speed -5 by
      about 3%. No compression performance change.

      Enable mode search threshold update in non-RD coding mode · 9349a28e
      Jingning Han authored
      Adaptively adjust the mode thresholds after each mode search round
      to skip checking less likely selected modes. Local tests indicate
      5% - 10% speed-up in speed -5 and -6. Average coding performance
      loss is -1.055%.

      Allow update of golden refernce buffer in CBR mode · e5cd5188
      Yaowu Xu authored
      This commit changes to allow the usage of golden reference frame in
      VP9 CBR mode to improve quality. VP9 supports potentially up to 8
      reference buffers, it has reference buffers available for this
      purpose. This was not possible in VP8 as golden and alt-ref buffers
      were used for temporal scalability purpose in CBR mode in WebRTC.
      For frames that update golden frame, there can be a quality boost.
      The amount of allowed bitrate boost can be controlled via parameter
      rc_max_inter_bitrate_pct. The inital value of the boost ratior is
      currently based on over_shoot_pct. Further experiments will work
      out the adaption of this boost value.

      Relax maximum Q for extreme overshoot. · 422d7bc9
      Paul Wilkins authored
      Added code to relax the active maximum Q in response
      to extreme local overshoot to reduce bandwidth peaks.
      The impact is small in metrics terms, but it this helps reduce
      bandwidth spikes and overall overshoot in a number of
      clips in our tests sets (especially the YT test set).
      In particular this should help prevent very big spikes where a clip
      is mainly easy but has a short hard section. In such a case a choice
      of maximum Q for the clip as a whole may allow us to hit the overall
      target rate but give some extreme spikes. The chunked encoding in YT
      mitigates this problem but it can show up where a longer clip is
      coded as a single chunk.
