#930 closed defect (fixed)

"short_term_ref_pic_set_idx" is undefined when Ceil(Log2(num_short_term_ref_pic_sets)) is equal to 0.

In the WD, "short_term_ref_pic_set_idx" is undefined when Ceil(Log2(num_short_term_ref_pic_sets)) is equal to 0.
I suggest to append "When not present, the value of short_term_ref_pic_set_idx is inferred to be equal to 0."
to the end of its defnition.

For reference, in HM9.1 TDecCavlc::parseSliceHeader(), "short_term_ref_pic_set_idx" is defined bellow;

if (numBits > 0)

READ_CODE( numBits, uiCode, "short_term_ref_pic_set_idx");}


uiCode = 0;

This looks like a bug indeed. The same bug applies to the syntax element lt_idx_sps[ i ].

I think the right fixes should be similar to what was agreed at the Shanghai meeting for sending of list_entry_l0[ i ] and list_entry_l1[ i ] only when NumPocTotalCurr > 1.

Thus, the syntax should be changed to:

if( !short_term_ref_pic_set_sps_flag )

short_term_ref_pic_set( num_short_term_ref_pic_sets )

else if( num_short_term_ref_pic_sets > 1 )



if( i < num_long_term_sps && num_long_term_ref_pics_sps > 1 )

lt_idx_sps[ i ]


And in the semantics, add what was suggested by tajime, for both short_term_ref_pic_set_idx and lt_idx_sps[ i ].
