vidprofile is a collection of a few components that finds the best way to create MPEG video with mjpegtools. It fully characterizes mpeg2enc from mjpegtools and helps answer the question: given a file size limit, what are the best mpeg2enc options (and values) to use that give the highest possible quality MPEG video? mpeg2enc has an abundance of command line options, and each one tweaks the encoded output (some options tweak to larger degrees than others). vidprofile offers a set of tools to let the user fully test each of the options in mpeg2enc and quantify the output video's size and quality.
CVL is a library for image and data processing using graphics processing units (GPUs). It is suitable as a base for GPGPU applications.
