First, I'm sorry to compare Intel MSDK with x264, because my job is related about mirrorop domain and some
h.264 codecs must be tested or measured in order to be able to apply to our real-time application. Currently, I take
Intel MSDK and x264 to compare the encoding performance with varying parameter adjustment. Some features
can be found that1. Intel MSDK has less adjustable parameter than x264 and some important parameters which
would affect the complexity of codec have been reserved (such as MESearchType, MVSEARCHWindow or
MVPrecision etc...), (2. the encoding efficiency of x264 is best than Intel MSDK by our several tests in FFMPEG
decoder. (3. and the more parameters can not mapping between x264 and Intel MSDK except basic parameter.
I have Some question and suggestion about Intel MSDK:
1. Do these reserved parameters will open or not in future version Some parameters about inter prediction which
include motion estimation and compensation are reserved. Can I understand how to set in the part yourselves?
2. It is known that x264 has analyzed the feature of FFMPEG h.264 decoder and taken them into their encoder
design in order to increase the performance. May Intel MSDK try to this way to get more performance at
3. x264 sets different parameter set in varying profile or preset mode, and this is easy to use for any user.
When we utilize Intel MSDK into our program, it is confused how to adjust any parameter for getting best
performance. (the reference website: http://dev.gentoo.org/~beandog/x264_preset_reference.html)
