The video coding standard H.264/MPEG-4 AVC is designed based on the basic unit of macroblock (MB). In order to support the arbitrary resolution video coding when the picture does not contain an integral number of MBs, the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC encoder usually invokes a picture padding process to extend the boundaries of a picture by adding extra pixels. In this way, the video of an arbitrary resolution can be coded by an ordinary encoder and the resulting bitstream follows the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC… CONTINUE READING
