uint8_t AVCodec::max_lowres

maximum value for lowres supported by the decoder

int AVCodec::priv_data_size
struct AVCodec* AVCodec::next
int(* AVCodec::init_thread_copy)(AVCodecContext *)

If defined, called on thread contexts when they are created.

If the codec allocates writable tables in init(), re-allocate them here. priv_data will be set to a copy of the original.

Definition at line 3398 of file avcodec.h.

Referenced by ff_frame_thread_init().

int(* AVCodec::update_thread_context)(AVCodecContext *dst, const AVCodecContext *src)

Copy necessary context variables from a previous thread context to the current one.

If not defined, the next thread will start automatically; otherwise, the codec must call ff_thread_finish_setup().

dst and src will (rarely) point to the same context, in which case memcpy should be skipped.

int(* AVCodec::encode2)(AVCodecContext *avctx, AVPacket *avpkt, const AVFrame *frame, int *got_packet_ptr)

Encode data to an AVPacket.

Parameters
avctxcodec context
avpktoutput AVPacket (may contain a user-provided buffer)
[in]frameAVFrame containing the raw data to be encoded
[out]got_packet_ptrencoder sets to 0 or 1 to indicate that a non-empty packet was returned in avpkt.
Returns
0 on success, negative error code on failure

int(* AVCodec::send_frame)(AVCodecContext *avctx, const AVFrame *frame)

Encode API with decoupled packet/frame dataflow.

The API is the same as the avcodec_ prefixed APIs (avcodec_send_frame() etc.), except that:

  • never called if the codec is closed or the wrong type,
  • if AV_CODEC_CAP_DELAY is not set, drain frames are never sent,
  • only one drain frame is ever passed down,

int(* AVCodec::receive_frame)(AVCodecContext *avctx, AVFrame *frame)

Decode API with decoupled packet/frame dataflow.

This function is called to get one output frame. It should call ff_decode_get_packet() to obtain input data.

void(* AVCodec::flush)(AVCodecContext *)
