      Adding a frame parallel decoding mode · dfd89f2e
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      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.

      Start to anonymize reference frames · da832a80
      John Koleszar authored
      Remove lst_fb_idx, gld_fb_idx, alt_fb_idx, refresh_last_frame,
      refresh_golden_frame, refresh_alt_ref_frame from common. Gold/Alt are
      encode side conventions. From the decoder's perspective, we want to be
      dealing with numbered references.
      
      Updates to active_ref 2 signal mode context switches, vestigial from
      refresh_alt_ref_frame. This needs some clean up to make sense with
      increased numbers of reference frames, as well as reimplementing the
      swapping of alt/golden which was previously done using the
      buffer-to-buffer copy mechanism removed in an earlier commit.

      New prediction filter · 7d6b5425
      Adrian Grange authored
      This patch removes the old pred-filter experiment and replaces it
      with one that is implemented using the switchable filter framework.
      
      If the pred-filter experiment is enabled, three interopolation
      filters are tested during mode selection; the standard 8-tap
      interpolation filter, a sharp 8-tap filter and a (new) 8-tap
      smoothing filter.
      
      The 6-tap filter code has been preserved for now and if the
      enable-6tap experiment is enabled (in addition to the pred-filter
      experiment) the original 6-tap filter replaces the new 8-tap smooth
      filter in the switchable mode.
      
      The new experiment applies the prediction filter in cases of a
      fractional-pel motion vector. Future patches will apply the filter
      where the mv is pel-aligned and also to intra predicted blocks.

      New interpolation filter selection algorithm · 259b8008
      Adrian Grange authored
      Old Scheme:
      When SWITCHABLE filter selection is enabled the encoder
      evaluates the use of each interpolation filter type and
      selects the best one to use at the MB level. A frame-
      level flag can be set to force the use of a particular
      filter type for all MBs in a frame if it is more efficient
      to encode that way. The logic here involved a Q dependent
      threshold that assumed that the second 8-tap filter was
      a high-pass filter. However, this requires a trip around
      the recode loop. If the frame-level flag indicates use
      of a particular filter, the other filters are not
      evaluated in the pick_mode loop.
      
      New Scheme:
      Each filter type is evaluated at the MB level and a record
      of the best filter is kept, irrespective of what filter
      is signaled at the frame-level. Once all MBs have been
      encoded, a decision is made as to what frame-level mode
      to set for the *next* frame. If one filter is used by 80%
      or more of the MBs, then this filter is forced since it
      is assumed that this will be more efficient if the
      next frame has similar characteristics. i.e. there is a
      one-frame lag between measuring the filter selection and
      setting the frame-level mode to use.

      Consistently use get_prob(), clip_prob() and newly added clip_pixel(). · 4d0ec7aa
      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      Add a function clip_pixel() to clip a pixel value to the [0,255] range
      of allowed values, and use this where-ever appropriate (e.g. prediction,
      reconstruction). Likewise, consistently use the recently added function
      clip_prob(), which calculates a binary probability in the [1,255] range.
      If possible, try to use get_prob() or its sister get_binary_prob() to
      calculate binary probabilities, for consistency.
      
      Since in some places, this means that binary probability calculations
      are changed (we use {255,256}*count0/(total) in a range of places,
      and all of these are now changed to use 256*count0+(total>>1)/total),
      this changes the encoding result, so this patch warrants some extensive
      testing.

      32x32 transform for superblocks. · c456b35f
      Ronald S. Bultje authored
      This adds Debargha's DCT/DWT hybrid and a regular 32x32 DCT, and adds
      code all over the place to wrap that in the bitstream/encoder/decoder/RD.
      
      Some implementation notes (these probably need careful review):
      - token range is extended by 1 bit, since the value range out of this
        transform is [-16384,16383].
      - the coefficients coming out of the FDCT are manually scaled back by
        1 bit, or else they won't fit in int16_t (they are 17 bits). Because
        of this, the RD error scoring does not right-shift the MSE score by
        two (unlike for 4x4/8x8/16x16).
      - to compensate for this loss in precision, the quantizer is halved
        also. This is currently a little hacky.
      - FDCT and IDCT is double-only right now. Needs a fixed-point impl.
      - There are no default probabilities for the 32x32 transform yet; I'm
        simply using the 16x16 luma ones. A future commit will add newly
        generated probabilities for all transforms.
      - No ADST version. I don't think we'll add one for this level; if an
        ADST is desired, transform-size selection can scale back to 16x16
        or lower, and use an ADST at that level.
      
      Additional notes specific to Debargha's DWT/DCT hybrid:
      - coefficient scale is different for the top/left 16x16 (DCT-over-DWT)
        block than for the rest (DWT pixel differences) of the block. Therefore,
        RD error scoring isn't easily scalable between coefficient and pixel
        domain. Thus, unfortunately, we need to compute the RD distortion in
        the pixel domain until we figure out how to scale these appropriately.

      Compound inter-intra experiment · 0c917fc9
      Deb Mukherjee authored
      A patch on compound inter-intra prediction.
      
      In compound inter-intra prediction, a new predictor for
      16x16 inter coded MBs are obtained by combining a single
      inter predictor with a 16x16 intra predictor, in a manner
      that the weight varies with distance from the top/left
      boundary. The current search strategy is to combine the best
      inter mode with the best intra mode obtained independently.
      
      Results so far:
      
      derf +0.31%
      yt +0.32%
      std-hd +0.35%
      hd +0.42%
      
      It is conceivable that the results would improve somewhat
      with a more thorough search strategy where all intra modes
      are searched given the best mv, or even a joint search for
      the best mv and the best intra mode.
