#1277 new defect

DPB size in HM — at Initial Version

Reported by: adarsh Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: HM Version: HM-14.0
Keywords: Cc: fbossen, ksuehring, davidf, jct-vc@…


The following code exists in the HM decoder in TDecTop::xGetNewPicBuffer:

if ( !bBufferIsAvailable )

There is no room for this picture, either because of faulty encoder or dropped NAL. Extend the buffer.
rpcPic = new TComPic();
m_cListPic.pushBack( rpcPic );


It basically allocates memory more than the size indicated by the DPB, which should not be permitted. It is particularly significant in testing bitstream conformance, to ensure that a bitstream does not accidentally exceed the signalled DPB size but HM decoder doesn't catch it.
