Video encoding due to its high processing requirements has been traditionally done using special-purpose hardware. Software solutions have been explored but are considered to be feasible only for nonreal-time applications requiring low encoding rates. However, a software solution using a general-purpose computing system has numerous advantages: It is more available and flexible and allows experimenting with and hence improving various components of the encoder. In this paper, we present the… CONTINUE READING
