This paper proposes an algorithmic modification in the rate control test model 5 (TM5) of MPEG-2 video encoder. A drawback of the TM5 model is that it allocates the same number of bits to all macroblocks in a picture (April 2003) (M. Sipitca, August 1996). A more appropriate distribution of the available bits can be done based on the complexity of the… (More)
