Video test sequences

Postby ^rooker » Fri Oct 25, 2013 12:24 pm

This thread is used to provide a link-collection to different video material which can be used for testing equipment/codecs/whatever.

Xiph also hosts lossless versions of the Blender OpenMovie project's files.
(Thanks Xiph! Thanks Blender!)
NOTE: Tears of Steel is the rare chance to get hands on the raw EXR image sequences of a movie (stored in ILM's OpenEXR format) :)

2) Video Quality Experts Group (VQEG)

3) Swedish Television (SVT)

4) Austrian Mediathek

5) European Broadcasting Union (EBU)
NOTE: The EBU sequences can not be used for official, publicly reproducible tests, due to their licensing restrictions.
Excellent idea, to restrict test-videos to a small, exclusive group of members, so video experts, codec-developers and researchers are unable to share their results :?
UPDATE: The "Public Test Set" may be shared under Creative Commons (CC-BY-NC-ND) license.

I will only list them here for the sake of completeness.
If you can, please avoid using the EBU testvideos, and rather use material which is available to others, too.

Jumping out of an airplane is not a basic instinct. Neither is breathing underwater. But put the two together and you're traveling through space!

So here's the link:

For some FFV1-tests, I've specifically used "matrixbench_mpeg.mpg":
