  • Patent number: 10841593
    Abstract: A device includes one or more processors configured to derive M most probable modes (MPMs) for intra prediction of a block of video data. As part of deriving the M most probable modes, the one or more processors define a representative intra prediction mode for a left neighboring column and use the representative intra prediction mode for the left neighboring column as an MPM for the left neighboring column, and/or define a representative intra prediction mode for an above neighboring row and use the representative intra prediction mode for the above neighboring row as an MPM for the above neighboring row. A syntax element that indicates whether an MPM index or a non-MPM index is used to indicate a selected intra prediction mode for intra prediction of the block is decoded. The one or more processors reconstruct the block based on the selected intra prediction mode.

    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide methods and apparatuses for video encoding/decoding. In some examples, an apparatus for video decoding includes receiving circuitry and processing circuitry. The processing circuitry decodes prediction information of a current block from a coded video bitstream. The prediction information is indicative of an inter prediction mode and a usage of a position dependent prediction combination (PDPC) in the inter prediction mode. Then, the processing circuitry calculates an intermediate value for a sample in the current block based on neighboring samples of the current block that are selected based on a position of the sample, and combines the intermediate value for the sample with an inter prediction value of the sample to reconstruct the sample.
