Ideas for x264
This is a temporary page for listing ideas for Google Code-in tasks.
The final tasks will be moved to melange, when needed.
Category: Quality Assurance
Description: Automated regression test tool
Details: x264 has no standard regression test tool, and all the developers rely on their own scripts. An automated regression test tool should be able to:
- Test any two revisions against each other.
- Test a wide variety of x264 settings combinations. We can help you here by giving you some of the existing scripts.
- Report the status of a revision: working (basic regression test passes), broken (basic regression test fails), crash, etc.
- Report the difference between any two revisions (output differs, output is identical, which tests' output differs, etc).
Outcome: A regression test script (in Bash, Perl, Python, or similar)
Tools: x264, JM, ffmpeg, Linux, git
Time: 3 days
