Getting Started


  • H.264 and Mpeg-4 Video Compression: Video Coding for Next Generation Multimedia, Iain E. G. Richardson



Potential Projects

  • Performance improvements (asm optimization, etc), particularly wanted: NEON stuff.
  • Algorithmic improvements. Examples of past projects: viterbi, b-adapt, macroblock-tree, ratecontrol, psy-rd
  • support for new features in the h.264 spec, such as: MBAFF, 4:2:2/4:4:4, weightp, 10-bit
  • Support for new enconder features independent of the spec, such as: sliced threads, low-latency output, threadpools, etc
  • new external-to-the-main-encoder features (x264 features), such as audio support, new output muxers, new input modules, filters, etc
