     149This is a list of projects that students are encouraged to consider if a mentored project is unavailable or not within the students skill or interests. The student will have to find a mentor for the project. A student can also [#YourOwnProjectIdea propose their own project].

     151== VC-1 interlaced ==
     152
     153'''Description:''' The FFmpeg VC-1 decoder has improved over the years, but many samples are still not decoded bit-exact and some real-world interlaced streams show artefacts. This task is difficult.
     154
     155'''Expected results:'''
     156* Implement missing parts of interlacing
     157* Make more reference samples bit-exact
     158
     159'''Prerequisites:''' C coding skills, basic familiarity with git, ability to read and understand the vc1 specification and align that knowledge with the existing code
     160
     161'''Qualification Task:''' Find a bug in the current decoder implementation and fix it.
     162
     163
     164== JPEG 2000 ==
     165
     166'''Description:''' FFmpeg contains a native JPEG 2000 encoder and decoder. Both are missing many features, see also the FFmpeg bug tracker for some unsupported samples. This task is difficult
     167
     168'''Expected results:''' A jpeg 2000 decoder which can decode more samples and / or an encoder that achieves higher compression.
     169
     170'''Qualification Task:''' Fix an issue (for example from the bug tracker) to show that you are capable of improving the codec implementation.
     171
     172'''Prerequisites:''' C coding skills, basic familiarity with git, good knowledge of Jpeg-2000
