Mplayer Development And Optimization For Arm
« on: December 05, 2006, 05:43:15 pm »
Probably it is a good idea to consolidate efforts and try to submit some of the useful ARM related patches upstream:
http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/pipermail/ffmpeg...ust/014460.html
http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/pipermail/mplaye...ber/046207.html

I can only test MPlayer on Nokia 770, so can't be sure if any ARM9E (that's the core used in Nokia 770) specific optimizations are also good for Zaurus. So people who are able to compile MPlayer from sources and test it on zaurus are welcome in this thread. One of the examples is the new armv5te optimized idct in MPlayer 1.0rc1, can anybody benchmark it on Zaurus?

Also this is not quite ARM architecture related, but libmad based decoder in MPlayer seems to have troubles with variable bitrate audio (it loses sync with video). Some more details can be found here http://lists.mplayerhq.hu/pipermail/mplaye...ust/045017.html and in the followup messages. Any volunteer to investigate this problem?

All in all, ffmpeg optimizations for ARM are not nearly as good as for x86, so investing some time in it may provide some performance improvement.

Hi!
Check atty sources, 99% of mplayer for the zaurus is optimized with iwmmx code.
Cheers,

mpeg-video decoder isn't 99% of mplayer-atty, and those bits are in upstream mplayer as well.

Well, that's very good. Can anybody verify that this iwmmx code works correctly and submit everything that is usable upstream? If it is already there, can you confirm that it is really in a good shape?

I know that some of the atty's code was committed to upstream mplayer source tree (you can check SVN changelog), but I doubt that anyone tested it. The check for iwmmx availability was only added to MPlayer configure script in 1.0rc1 release. So up until this last release, it was not usable without additional patches.

Speaking of iwmmx optimizations, idct code still does not use iwmmx in MPlayer at all, and it is one of the most performance critical parts of code. Only the last MPlayer release got armv5te optimized idct, which was optimized according to http://www.arm.com/pdfs/DDI0222B_9EJS_r1p2.pdf (ARM9E instruction timings). As far as I know, it was developed and tested for Nokia 770 and it really improved mpeg4 decoding performance for about 10%. Most likely this code is not very good for XScale, as XScale has a much more complicated pipeline with lots of interlocks if code is not arranged as it likes (see http://download.intel.com/design/intelxscale/27347302.pdf). I wonder if some 'blended' idct code can be developed or it is better to have separate implementations for ARM9E and XScale. Anyway, it needs to be benchmarked first before making any decisions.

In addition, Zaurus builds of MPlayer seem to use some additional modules for hardware accelerated video output. I wonder if it is a good idea to contribute them upstream? MPlayer seems to have special video output code for some old 3dfx and matrox video cards, I doubt that zaurus specific video output code is something that is more exotic and not worth being supported upstream

We had patches for that in OE  I haven't tested it yet, though.

I'm very happy to learn that the ARM specific parts of mplayer are being actively developed so please keep us updated on its progress serge.

Antikx: I agree! I don't think any event in the world of OSS and computer hardware can escape the all pervading attention of the supreme tech oracle that is koen- seriously! I think that man must have embedded RSS,email and web browser in his head that he can monitor and post to even when asleep

Well, 'actively developed' is a gross overestimation  I don't think anybody else is working on ARM optimizations for ffmpeg right now. And I currently switched to the development of Nokia 770 hardware accelerated video output code: http://maemo.org/pipermail/maemo-developer...ber/006646.html

Anyway, further optimizations for decoder are still needed. That is if we want to at least make an attempt of getting proper playback support for nonconverted video  Having to convert everything to 320x240 (or to 400x224 for 16:9) is not much fun. You are lucky to have faster CPU in Zaurus

Just to keep you informed, the work on implementing MPlayer video output driver with hardware YUV support for Nokia 770 is more or less finished. At least it is in usable state now.

But in order to get good performance for any video resolutions, optimized YV12->YUY2 scaler is still needed on Nokia 770. By the way, how does Zaurus handle video scaling? Is it hardware accelerated or a software scaler is used? If it is software scaler, what YUV format is used for output?

Here is some mplayer log console output from Nokia 770 (video is software scaled to 400x210 and then hardware pixel doubling is used to show it fullscreen as 800x420):
Code: [Select]
VO: [nokia770] 336x176 => 336x176 Planar YV12 [fs]
SwScaler: reducing / aligning filtersize 2 -> 2
SwScaler: reducing / aligning filtersize 2 -> 2
SwScaler: reducing / aligning filtersize 2 -> 2
SwScaler: reducing / aligning filtersize 2 -> 2

SwScaler: FAST_BILINEAR scaler, from yuv420p to yuyv422 using C
SwScaler: using FAST_BILINEAR C scaler for horizontal scaling
SwScaler: using 2-tap linear C scaler for vertical scaling (BGR)
SwScaler: 336x176 -> 400x210
What do you usually observe on your Zaurus?

That depends on the models, but basically:

* collie: no acceleration at all
* poodle: ditto
* c7x0: ati imageon w100 which can do limited scaling, YUV transform and idct (http://libw100.sf.net/)
* cxxxx: pxa270fb, which doesn't do scaling AFAIK, but can do YUV transforms and has a small amount of SRAM to do faster blitting when using QVGA.

The cxxx models can also use iwmmxt instructions, but a crude test showed it only gives a ~2% improvement, but there's a lot of room for improvement.
The c7x0 models would benefit from people helping the libw100 project.

Some information about mplayer benchmarking. It contains -benchmark option which can measure time spent for decoding video, displaying video (including scaling and color conversion) and audio.

One of the options that affect decoding performance is idct implemntation. It can be specified by using -lavdopts idct=# where # is some decimal number. MPlayer man contains the following information:
Code: [Select]
      idct=<0-99>
              IDCT algorithm
              NOTE: To the best of our knowledge all these IDCTs do pass the IEEE1180 tests.
                 0    Automatically select a good one (default).
                 1    JPEG reference integer
                 2    simple
                 3    simplemmx
                 4    libmpeg2mmx (inaccurate, do not use for encoding with keyint >100)
                 5    ps2
                 6    mlib
                 7    arm
                 8    AltiVec
                 9    sh4

But man pages are a bit incomplete and more information can be found in libavcodec/avcodec.h:
Code: [Select]
#define FF_IDCT_AUTO         0
#define FF_IDCT_INT          1
#define FF_IDCT_SIMPLE       2
#define FF_IDCT_SIMPLEMMX    3
#define FF_IDCT_LIBMPEG2MMX  4
#define FF_IDCT_PS2          5
#define FF_IDCT_MLIB         6
#define FF_IDCT_ARM          7
#define FF_IDCT_ALTIVEC      8
#define FF_IDCT_SH4          9
#define FF_IDCT_SIMPLEARM    10
#define FF_IDCT_H264         11
#define FF_IDCT_VP3          12
#define FF_IDCT_IPP          13
#define FF_IDCT_XVIDMMX      14
#define FF_IDCT_CAVS         15
#define FF_IDCT_SIMPLEARMV5TE 16

The following idct implementations can be interesting on ARM:
#define FF_IDCT_ARM          7 (default idct that was used for ARM)
#define FF_IDCT_SIMPLEARM    10
#define FF_IDCT_SIMPLEARMV5TE 16 (recently added in mplayer 1.0rc1)

In order to benchmark video decoding I used the following video clip (10MB version, MD5=1d62b8819bf1433df0dc9b5257f4fc35). Direct link is here: http://trailers.divx.com/Universal/Doom.divx

It does not matter which video to take, my only concern was that it should be freely downloadable in order to be able to compare results from different machines.

My setup is MPlayer 1.0rc1, Nokia 770 (ARM926EJS 250MHz), gcc version 3.4.4 (release) (CodeSourcery ARM 2005q3-2), configured with CFLAGS="-O4 -mcpu=arm926ej-s -fomit-frame-pointer -ffast-math"

# mplayer -loop 5 -quiet -benchmark -nosound -vo null -lavdopts idct=7 Doom.divx | grep BENCHMARKs
BENCHMARKs: VC:  67.369s VO:   0.075s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.600s =   68.043s

BENCHMARKs: VC:  65.372s VO:   0.074s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.665s =   66.111s
BENCHMARKs: VC:  65.493s VO:   0.075s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.640s =   66.208s
BENCHMARKs: VC:  66.321s VO:   0.076s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.629s =   67.026s
BENCHMARKs: VC:  66.202s VO:   0.075s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.642s =   66.919s

Here is also the result for FF_IDCT_SIMPLE (just C implementation with no assembly) for comparison:

# mplayer -loop 5 -quiet -benchmark -nosound -vo null -lavdopts idct=2 Doom.divx | grep BENCHMARKs
BENCHMARKs: VC:  71.117s VO:   0.072s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.622s =   71.811s
BENCHMARKs: VC:  72.435s VO:   0.072s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.598s =   73.105s
BENCHMARKs: VC:  72.576s VO:   0.073s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.663s =   73.312s
BENCHMARKs: VC:  73.364s VO:   0.074s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.660s =   74.098s
BENCHMARKs: VC:  73.304s VO:   0.073s A:   0.000s Sys:   0.637s =   74.014s

So the fastest idct for Nokia 770 is FF_IDCT_SIMPLEARMV5TE (number 16), it has some optimizations using armv5te dsp instructions (single cycle 16 x 16 bit multiplication). It is also the default setting for any cpu that supports armv5te instructions in mplayer 1.0rc1 now. This code is the first revision and most likely can be optimized even more. Also the overall results difference because of using different idct implementations use may vary for different video files, I observed performance improvement of up to 10% (on high bitrate but low resolution movies). For this particular file we see that the improvement is only about 6%.

A strange thing here in these benchmarks is that the results are a bit nonconsistent and decoding time slightly increases with each new cycle iteration.

It would be very interesting to see some benchmark results from Zaurus to see which idct works best for it. MPlayer and ffmpeg don't have any iwmmxt optimized idct right now (and it could provide some improvement as it should be able to do two 16 x 16 bit multiplications per cycle).

So more benchmarks are welcome, preferably using the same test file. Or you can suggest some other sample for testing. Also after running these benchmarks, we can see how big is the performance difference between Nokia 770 and Zaurus hardware, which also might be interesting to know

Hi Serge!

I conducted a bunch of benchmark tests using a Zaurus C3000 running pdaXii13 build4 full which includes Meanies build of mplayer 1.0rc1 (which he has named the binary mplayer3) and I used the same Doom divx clip that you linked in all the tests with the same command you used.

For these first four sets of benchmarks the Z was running at the standard 416Mhz setting and the commands were run under an X11 terminal:

--------------------

So, just as on the 770 it would seem idct16 is clearly the fastest

Mplayer Development And Optimization For Arm

I ran the benchmark on my ipaq h2200 (400MHz pxa255) and I can see that the memory bus is a bottleneck, since the 770 and pxa270 machines run the bus at a higher speed.
If that isn't the case, arm926 cores kick xscale ass
