Personal FFMPEG fork
This fork contains the following extensions to ffmpeg (each in its own branch):
- nlmeans - Non-Local Means noise reduction filter.
- fieldshift - Horizontally shift fields of interlaced images against each other (useful e.g. for VHS video recovery).
- libde265 - Integration of libde265 HEVC video decoder.
- h - averaging weight decay parameter (larger values give smoother videos)
- range - spatial search range (default=3), should be odd number.
- temporal - number of frames to include into search (default=2)
- patchsize - pixel context region width (default=7, little need to change), should be odd number.
The defaults (h=8, range=3, temporal=2) is a good starting point for the restoration of very noisy video (old VHS tapes). You may also try 10/5/3 for really noisy inputs or 6/3/1 for good quality inputs.
The NLMeans filter is under GPL, so be sure to configure with
- offset - pixel offset between successive rows
Get and install the latest version of libde265 from here: https://github.com/strukturag/libde265
Configure this ffmpeg fork with at least these options:
./configure --enable-libde265 --enable-decoder=libde265 --enable-gpl
The patched ffmpeg can play MKVs containing H.265 streams encoded with the DIVX HEVC encoder. You can download an example stream from their webpage: http://labs.divx.com/node/127909
