      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.

      Convert subpixel filters to use convolve framework · 7a07eea1
      John Koleszar authored
      Update the code to call the new convolution functions to do subpixel
      prediction rather than the existing functions. Remove the old C and
      assembly code, since it is unused. This causes a 50% performance
      reduction on the decoder, but that will be resolved when the asm for
      the new functions is available.
      
      There is no consensus for whether 6-tap or 2-tap predictors will be
      supported in the final codec, so these filters are implemented in
      terms of the 8-tap code, so that quality testing of these modes
      can continue. Implementing the lower complexity algorithms is a
      simple exercise, should it be necessary.
      
      This code produces slightly better results in the EIGHTTAP_SMOOTH
      case, since the filter is now applied in only one direction when
      the subpel motion is only in one direction. Like the previous code,
      the filtering is skipped entirely on full-pel MVs. This combination
      seems to give the best quality gains, but this may be indicative of a
      bug in the encoder's filter selection, since the encoder could
      achieve the result of skipping the filtering on full-pel by selecting
      one of the other filters. This should be revisited.
      
      Quality gains on derf positive on almost all clips. The only clip
      that seemed to be hurt at all datarates was football
      (-0.115% PSNR average, -0.587% min). Overall averages 0.375% PSNR,
      0.347% SSIM.

      Optimize 16x16 dequant and idct · 6c17c9fa
      Yunqing Wang authored
      As suggested by Yaowu, simplified 16x16 dequant and idct. In decoder,
      after detoken step, we know the number of non-zero dct coefficients
      (eobs) in a macroblock. Idct calculation can be skipped or simplified
      based on eobs, which improves the decoder performance.

      hybrid transform of 16x16 dimension · de6dfa6b
      Jingning Han authored
      Enable ADST/DCT of dimension 16x16 for I16X16 modes. This change provides
      benefits mostly for hd sequences.
      
      Set up the framework for selectable transform dimension.
      
      Also allowing quantization parameter threshold to control the use
      of hybrid transform (This is currently disabled by setting threshold
      always above the quantization parameter. Adaptive thresholding can
      be built upon this, which will further improve the coding performance.)
      
      The coding performance gains (with respect to the codec that has all
      other configuration settings turned on) are
      
      derf:   0.013
      yt:     0.086

      Superblock coding. · 5d4cffb3
      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      This commit adds a pick_sb_mode() function which selects the best 32x32
      superblock coding mode. Then it selects the best per-MB modes, compares
      the two and encodes that in the bitstream.
      
      The bitstream coding is rather simplistic right now. At the SB level,
      we code a bit to indicate whether this block uses SB-coding (32x32
      prediction) or MB-coding (anything else), and then we follow with the
      actual modes. This could and should be modified in the future, but is
      omitted from this commit because it will likely involve reorganizing
      much more code rather than just adding SB coding, so it's better to let
      that be judged on its own merits.
      
      Gains on derf: about even, YT/HD: +0.75%, STD/HD: +1.5%.

      Merging and bug-fix in enhanced_interp experiment · 0ebf548c
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Merged the enhanced_interp experiment.
      Found and fixed a bug in the include files framework, whereby
      certain encoder files were still using the old INTERP_EXTEND
      value of 3 instead of 4. The thresholds for mv range mcomp.c
      need a small adjustment to prevent crashes.
      
      The results are more or less unchanged.

      Remove threading dependencies with --disable-multithread · 8df79e9d
      John Koleszar authored
      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
      frame.

      Making subpel filters switchable at frame level · 475d5d56
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      Various refactoring to make the subpel motion compensation
      filters switchable by a frame level field.
      Two types of 8-tap filters are supported in addition to the existing
      bilinar and sixtap filters. One is the default 8-tap and the
      other has a sharper cut-off for use with frames with substantial
      edge content.
      
      Patch 2: Added a preliminary strategy for filter selection based on
      edginess detecton. Also includes some filter changes.

      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
