xvid.cvs.head.MTK.2007.07.25

That would be my compile and it would have been ICL10, either that or 9. This is the reason for the large filesize. Basically the only change to the core was to allow for the disabling of N-VOP's. The MTK profiles and alt 2-pass are part of the VfW dll only. Replacing the core, you would lose some speed maybe (depending on CPU and alt compiler) and you wouldn't be able to disable N-VOP's (bad for ESS based SAP's as I recall).

As for various newer builds. There were zero changes to the CVS since my last build other than some nasm 0.99.x compatibility changes (talking CVS here, not patches). Even those are six months or so old.

Compiling a newer build without the code updating, makes no difference, well other than compiler improvements in the meantime. Still might update my builds with the VAQ patch.

I used to do my own GCC compiles of Xvid a while back (cos at the time I didn't completely trust Koepi's builds), when they actually released the sources. I haven't done any of 1.2, cos there's nothing final, but speed was good, and it compiled, and if there's demand, I'll do one of 1.2. Size varied, but it wasn't UPX'd and defaults were used. VFW of course obligatory.

Will need to install and update MinGW to 3.4.6 though. 4 tends to be a lil slower, and less stable!

3.4.x is faster than 4.x series, except 4.4 that seems to be the fastest one but unstable.

Well, I finally found some time to create a build with the VAQ-patch as well. Find it at my Homepage.

Thanks Dark Shikari for the code!

I had to move some variable declarations around (to the beginning of the function blocks / loops) so the intel compiler won't abort with errors, but I'm quite positive that I didn't break anything.

I didn't test if the code works though. The installer does work at least ;-)

Cheers

I had similar problems with MSVC6, plus no 'logf'...

FYI...

According to that url, not only is it a bug in msvc, it was fixed 2 years ago. So I won't accept a workaround.

Thanks, Koepi!

...and now, because when recieving a gift, it is proper to ask for more...

1.2.x SMP build with VAQ? Pretty please? xD

I just used 'log' (as the macro would have anyway).

I was a bit concerned about the 'statements before declaration' type errors, until I convinced myself it wasn't a bad patch application on my part. A bit of reordering and VC6 was happy...

I'm lazy in that regard. I love throw statements before declarations, since gcc doesn't complain

Awesome, thanks Koepi!

Something about that Koepi Xvid feel, like it's the "true Xvid" xD

What's the date of the source, please?

You know, if people are actually using this, I might want to go back and see if I can make it work any better for Xvid's quants

One thought is a the following: A CQM full of intentionally low values in order to make Xvid's QP8 equivalent to QP2 (in order to increase the quantizer resolution for moving quants up/down). This would require adjusting Xvid's internal lambda in order to compensate.

You'd still have to adjust the internal lambdas or else you're just going to waste bits.

The 1.2 series give the plg_frame routine access to lamda via
XVID_REQLAMBDA /* plugin requires access to the lambda table */

I debated whether to 'announce' this, but what the hell...

I've been working on some enhancements to the HVS plugin (which I'm not ready to release yet), mostly some new variables and operators to work with and a couple bug fixes. (In case noone remembers, an earlier version of this code is in both squid_80's encraw and the xvidvfw I posted).

For example, on the AQ side, not only can you supply an eqn for the old lumi-masking (or variations), but now it will also allow expressing an equation for the new VAQ (or variations), or other approaches people might want to try. You can also do things based upon position (eg center vs sides) and some rudimentary support for zones (eg main movie vs end credits)

And, as the 1.2 version of that plugin also supports supplying equations to manipulate lamda, well *I* think it's a great tool for experimenting...

Stay tuned...
