Goodday all forummers, I have recently been assigned to a university project where the objectives are to reduce blocking distortions/artifacts by using MPEG-4/H.264 standard. As I have zero knowledge in this field, this project is completely new to me. Anyway, in this project I would have to: 1) Compare the performance (artifacts) of DCT and DWT. 2) Incorporate deblocking filter to smooth out the artifacts. As a start, I've tried looking for a H.264 source code in C (a simple one would do) but I couldnt find one. I'd really appreciate if someone could give me some guidance on where it could be found and how do I 'inject' some videos to the program and run it. Thank you so much.
