     344'''Description:''' FFmpeg currently does not support encoding to TrueHD, one of the lossless audio formats used on Bluray discs. A nearly functional Meridian Lossless Packing (MLP) encoder has already been written and is available on [https://github.com/ramiropolla/soc/tree/master/mlp github]. The MLP codec is the basis for TrueHD. For this project, that encoder is first to be updated to fit into the current codebase of FFmpeg and to be tested for conformance against Surcode's MLP encoder. Second, the encoder is to be updated to implement TrueHD functionality, allowing it to losslessly encode audio to play it on hardware devices capable of TrueHD decoding. Finally, the encoder is to be brought through the usual reviewing process to hit the codebase at the end of the project.

     346'''Expected results:''' a TrueHD encoder that allows to losslessly encode audio to play it on hardware devices capable of TrueHD decoding with a competetive compression rate
     347
     348'''Prerequisites:''' C coding skills, basic familiarity with git
     349
     350'''Qualification Task:''' Update the MLP encoder so that it produces a valid bitstream that can be decoded by FFmpeg without errors to silence. Find out how to validate the generated bitstream besides using FFmpeg.
