As I already wrote in the guide you can turn the deblocking filter for h.264-videos on or off. If you you want to know what is the effect of using this filter read the linked wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deblocking
For more infos about this topic please ask Shagrath, I'm not an expert in video codec settings.
Sorry... let me try again....
The English syntax
of the checkbox is what is confusing me... does checking the box:
- Disable deblocking or
- Enable it?
The confusion is whether "skips" is a verb (as in skip or bypass deblocking) or an adjective "skips loop deblocking" (at type of deblocking - skips loop) ?
So ... what does checking the box do or not do with deblocking?
I suspect for best quality one unchecks the box so the loop deblocking is not skipped or bypassed? But I'm curious as to why it seems to be checked by default then?
In English (my native language), it would be clearer to state it this way (if I understand it):
- Disable loop filter deblocking for H264: Disabling could degrade quality, so don't check this if your CPU is fast enough!
And by the way... that's still kinda backwards. Usually, checking something enables it, not disables it. I would expect then:
- Enable loop filter deblocking for H264: Disabling could degrade quality, so check this if your CPU is fast enough!
