Xiph.org Video Test Media [derf's collection]

All video sequences are in the uncompressed YUV4MPEG format used by the mjpegtools project unless otherwise indicated. This is the format accepted by the Theora encoder tools. Some encoding parameters such as framerate that were missing from the raw data have been guessed or inferred, and may be incorrect.

All sequences listed here were available at one time on publicly accessible servers or were given to us explicitly to host here, and are believed to be freely redistributable. When available, the appropriate copyright information is included. Some may impose additional restrictions or limitations. See the appropriate copyright file for details.

1These were converted from 16-bit linear RGB to Y'CbCr using Tobias Oelbaum's sgi2yuv utility, written expressly for this purpose. Because this program uses floating point calculations, the exact values of the output are dependent on the rounding mode and accuracy of the platform used. It is estimated that this affects fewer than 500 pixels per frame.

2These were converted from 8-bit RGB to Y'CbCr using Tobias Oelbaum's rgb2yuv utility. The same caveats as sgi2yuv apply with regards to repeatability.
