Hi All
I am using "x264 core:65 r1065 0e1a92c"

E:\copied\std_yuv_files\vga>x264 -B 512 --dump-yuv raw_dump.yuv -o raw.264 raw.yuv 640x480 --progress

Using the MSU Video Quality Measurement Tool v 1.52
I calculated the PSNR values. and i got
AVG=(47.19964+ 46.07288+ 43.65441)/3=45.64231

Please tell me Which is the correct PSNR

Y psnr is the psnr of the luminosity, U and V psnr are the psnr of the chroma information.

The average should be the correct one

Le Sagittaire ... ;-)

1- Ateme AVC or x264
2- VP7 or RV10 only for anime
3- XviD, DivX or WMV9
