Opus can transmit either mono or stereo audio within one stream. When
decoding a mono stream in stereo, the left and right channels will be
identical and when decoding a stereo channel in mono, the mono output
will be the average of the encoded left and right channels. In some cases
it is desirable to encode a stereo input stream in mono (e.g. because the
bitrate is insufficient for good quality stereo). The number of channels
encoded can be selected in realtime, but by default the reference encoder
attempts to make the best decision possible given the current bitrate.

Opus can encode frames of 2.5, 5, 10, 20, 40 or 60 ms. It can also combine
multiple frames into packets of up to 120 ms. Because of the overhead from
IP/UDP/RTP headers, sending fewer packets per second reduces the
bitrate, but increases latency and sensitivity to packet losses as
losing one packet constitutes a loss of a bigger chunk of audio
signal. Increasing the frame duration also slightly improves coding
efficiency, but the gain becomes small for frame sizes above 20 ms. For
this reason, 20 ms frames tend to be a good choice for most applications.

Many codecs transmit significant amounts of side information for
the purpose of controlling bit allocation within a frame. Often this
side information controls bit usage indirectly and must be carefully
selected to achieve the desired rate constraints.

The bandenergy normalized structure of Opus MDCT mode ensures that a
constant bit allocation for the shape content of a band will result in a
roughly constant tone to noise ratio, which provides for fairly consistent
perceptual performance. The effectiveness of this approach is the result of
two factors: that the band energy, which is understood to be perceptually
important on its own, is always preserved regardless of the shape precision, and because
the constant tonetonoise ratio implies a constant intraband noise to masking ratio.
Intraband masking is the strongest of the perceptual masking effects. This structure
means that the ideal allocation is more consistent from frame to frame than
it is for other codecs without an equivalent structure.

Because the bit allocation is used to drive the decoding of the rangecoder
+
+Because the bit allocation drives the decoding of the rangecoder
stream, it MUST be recovered exactly so that identical coding decisions are
made in the encoder and decoder. Any deviation from the reference's resulting
bit allocation will result in corrupted output, though implementers are
free to implement the procedure in any way which produces identical results.
Because all of the information required to decode a frame must be derived
from that frame alone in order to retain robustness to packet loss, the
overhead of explicitly signaling the allocation would be considerable,
especially for lowlatency (small frame size) applications,
even though the allocation is relatively static.

The range encoder maintains an internal state vector composed of the
fourtuple (low,rng,rem,ext) representing the low end of the current
range, the size of the current range, a single buffered output octet,
and a count of additional carrypropagating output octets. Both rng
and low are 32bit unsigned integer values, rem is an octet value or
the special value 1, and ext is an integer with at least 16 bits.
This state vector is initialized at the start of each each frame to
the value (0,2**31,1,0). The reference implementation reuses the
'val' field of the entropy coder structure to hold low, in order to
allow the same structure to be used for encoding and decoding, but
we maintain the distinction here for clarity.

+This state vector is initialized at the start of each each frame to the value

+This is a powerful tool for detecting errors in either an encoder or decoder
+ implementation.
+The value of val, on the other hand, represents different things in the encoder
+ and decoder, and is not expected to match.
+
+
+
+The decoder has no analog for rem and ext.
+These are used to perform carry propagation in the renormalization loop below.
+Each iteration of this loop produces 9 bits of output, consisting of 8 data
+ bits and a carry flag.
+The encoder cannot determine the final value of the output bytes until it

 The main encoding function is ec_encode() (entenc.c),
 which takes as an argument a threetuple (fl,fh,ft)
 describing the range of the symbol to be encoded in the current
 context, with 0 <= fl < fh <= ft <= 65535. The values of this tuple
 are derived from the probability model for the symbol. Let f(i) be
 the frequency of the i'th symbol in the current context. Then the
 threetuple corresponding to the k'th symbol is given by

+The main encoding function is ec_encode() (entenc.c), which encodes symbol k in
+ the current context using the same threetuple (fl[k], fh[k], ft)
+ as the decoder to describe the range of the symbol (see
+ ).
 ec_encode() updates the state of the encoder as follows. If fl is
 greater than zero, then low = low + rng  (rng/ft)*(ftfl) and
 rng = (rng/ft)*(fhfl). Otherwise, low is unchanged and
 rng = rng  (rng/ft)*(fhfl). The divisions here are exact integer
 division. After this update, the range is normalized.

+
+
+The divisions here are integer division.
+
+
+
+
+After this update, the range is normalized using a procedure very similar to
+ that of , implemented by
+ ec_enc_normalize() (entenc.c).
+The following process is repeated until rng > 2**23.

+The function ec_enc_carry_out() (entenc.c) implements carry propagation and
+ output buffering.
+It takes as input a 9bit value, c, consisting of 8 data bits and an additional
+ carry bit.
+If c is equal to the value 255, then ext is simply incremented, and no other
+ state updates are performed.
+Otherwise, let b = (c>>8) be the carry bit.
+Then,
+
+
+If the buffered byte rem contains a value other than 1, the encoder outputs
+ the byte (rem + b).
+Otherwise, if rem is 1, no byte is output.
 To normalize the range, the following process is repeated until
 rng > 2**23. First, the top 9 bits of low, (low>>23), are placed into
 a carry buffer. Then, low is set to . This process is carried out by
 ec_enc_normalize() (entenc.c).
+If ext is nonzero, then the encoder outputs ext bytesall with a value of 0

+

+
+
+
+
+
+
 The 9 bits produced in each iteration of the normalization loop
 consist of 8 data bits and a carry flag. The final value of the
 output bits is not determined until carry propagation is accounted
 for. Therefore the reference implementation buffers a single
 (nonpropagating) output octet and keeps a count of additional
 propagating (0xFF) output octets. An implementation may choose to use
 any mathematically equivalent scheme to perform carry propagation.
+The reference implementation uses three additional encoding methods that are
+ exactly equivalent to the above, but make assumptions and simplifications that
+ allow for a more efficient implementation.
+
+
 The function ec_enc_carry_out() (entenc.c) performs
 this buffering. It takes a 9bit input value, c, from the normalization:
 8 bits of output and a carry bit. If c is 0xFF, then ext is incremented
 and no octets are output. Otherwise, if rem is not the special value
 1, then the octet (rem+(c>>8)) is output. Then ext octets are output
 with the value 0 if the carry bit is set, or 0xFF if it is not, and
 rem is set to the lower 8 bits of c. After this, ext is set to zero.
+The first is ec_encode_bin() (entenc.c), defined using the parameter ftb
+ instead of ft.
+It is mathematically equivalent to calling ec_encode() with
+ ft = (1<<ftb), but avoids using division.
+
+
+
 In the reference implementation, a special version of ec_encode()
 called ec_encode_bin() (entenc.c) is defined to
 take a twotuple (fl,ftb), where , but avoids using division.
+The next is ec_enc_bit_logp() (entenc.c), which encodes a single binary symbol.
+The context is described by a single parameter, logp, which is the absolute
+ value of the base2 logarithm of the probability of a "1".
+It is mathematically equivalent to calling ec_encode() with the 3tuple
+ (fl[k] = 0, fh[k] = (1<<logp)  1,
+ ft = (1<<logp)) if k is 0 and with
+ (fl[k] = (1<<logp)  1,
+ fh[k] = ft = (1<<logp)) if k is 1.
+The implementation requires no multiplications or divisions.
+
+
+
+
+The last is ec_enc_icdf() (entenc.c), which encodes a single binary symbol with
+ a tablebased context of up to 8 bits.
+This uses the same icdf table as ec_dec_icdf() from
+ .
+The function is mathematically equivalent to calling ec_encode() with
+ fl[k] = (1<<ftb)  icdf[k1] (or 0 if
+ k == 0), fh[k] = (1<<ftb)  icdf[k], and
+ ft = (1<<ftb).
+This only saves a few arithmetic operations over ec_encode_bin(), but allows
+ the encoder to use the same icdf tables as the decoder.
+
+
 The CELT layer also allows directly encoding a series of raw bits, outside
 of the range coder, implemented in ec_enc_bits() (entenc.c).
 The raw bits are packed at the end of the packet, starting by storing the
 least significant bit of the value to be packed in the least significant bit
 of the last byte, filling up to the most significant bit in
 the last byte, and then continuing in the least significant bit of the
 penultimate byte, and so on.
 This packing may continue into the last byte output by the range coder,
 though the format should render it impossible to overwrite any set bit
 produced by the range coder when the procedure in
 is followed to finalize the stream.
+The raw bits used by the CELT layer are packed at the end of the buffer using
+ ec_enc_bits() (entenc.c).
+Because the raw bits may continue into the last byte output by the range coder
+ if there is room in the loworder bits, the encoder must be prepared to merge
+ these values into a single byte.
+The procedure in does this in a way that
+ ensures both the range coded data and the raw bits can be decoded
+ successfully.
 The function ec_enc_uint() is based on ec_encode() and encodes one of N
 equiprobable symbols, each with a frequency of 1, where N may be as large as
 2**321. Because ec_encode() is limited to a total frequency of 2**161, this
 is done by encoding a series of symbols in smaller contexts.
+The function ec_enc_uint() (entenc.c) encodes one of ft equiprobable symbols in
+ the range 0 to (ft  1), inclusive, each with a frequency of 1,
+ where ft may be as large as (2**32  1).
+Like the decoder (see ), it splits up the
+ value into a range coded symbol representing up to 8 of the high bits, and, if
+ necessary, raw bits representing the remainder of the value.
+
+
+ec_enc_uint() takes a twotuple (t, ft), where t is the value to be
+ encoded, 0 <= t < ft, and ft is not necessarily a
+ power of two.
+Let ftb = ilog(ft  1), i.e., the number of bits required
+ to store (ft  1) in two's complement notation.
+If ftb is 8 or less, then t is encoded directly using ec_encode() with the
+ threetuple (t, t + 1, ft).
 ec_enc_uint() (entenc.c) takes a twotuple (fl,ft),
 where ft is not necessarily a power of two. Let ftb be the location
 of the highest 1 bit in the two'scomplement representation of
 (ft1), or 1 if no bits are set. If ftb>8, then the top 8 bits of fl
 are encoded using ec_encode() with the threetuple
 (fl>>ftb8,(fl>>ftb8)+1,(ft1>>ftb8)+1), and the remaining bits
 are encoded as raw bits. Otherwise, fl is encoded with ec_encode() directly
 using the threetuple (fl,fl+1,ft).
+If ftb is greater than 8, then the top 8 bits of t are encoded using the
+ threetuple (t>>(ftb  8),
+ (t>>(ftb  8)) + 1,
+ ((ft  1)>>(ftb  8)) + 1), and the
+ remaining bits,
+ (t & ((1<<(ftb  8))  1),
+ are encoded as raw bits with ec_enc_bits().
 After all symbols are encoded, the stream must be finalized by
 outputting a value inside the current range. Let end be the integer
 in the interval [low,low+rng) with the largest number of trailing
 zero bits, b, such that end+(1<<b)1 is also in the interval
 [low,low+rng). Then while end is not zero, the top 9 bits of end, e.g.,
 >23), are sent to the carry buffer, and end is replaced by
 (end<<8&0x7FFFFFFF). Finally, if the value in carry buffer, rem, is]]>
 neither zero nor the special value 1, or the carry count, ext, is
 greater than zero, then 9 zero bits are sent to the carry buffer.
 After the carry buffer is finished outputting octets, the rest of the
 output buffer (if any) is padded with zero bits, until it reaches the raw
 bits. Finally, rem is set to the
 special value 1. This process is implemented by ec_enc_done()
 (entenc.c).

+Let end be the integer in the interval [val, val + rng) with the

+ (end + (1<<b)  1) is also in the interval
+ [val, val + rng).
+This choice of end allows the maximum number of trailing bits to be set to
+ arbitrary values while still ensuring the range coded part of the buffer can
+ be decoded correctly.
+Then, while end is not zero, the top 9 bits of end, i.e., (end>>23), are
+ passed to the carry buffer in accordance with the procedure in
+ , and end is updated via

+
+Finally, if the buffered output byte, rem, is neither zero nor the special
+ value 1, or the carry count, ext, is greater than zero, then 9 zero bits are
+ sent to the carry buffer to flush it to the output buffer.
+When outputting the final byte from the range coder, if it would overlap any
+ raw bits already packed into the end of the output buffer, they should be ORed
+ into the same byte.

+implementation. The passing threshold (quality 0) was calibrated in such a way that it corresponds to
+additive white noise with a 48 dB SNR (similar to what can be obtained on a cassette deck).
+It is still possible for an implementation to sound very good with such a low quality measure
+(e.g. if the deviation is due to inaudible phase distortion), but unless this is verified by
+listening tests, it is RECOMMENDED that implementations achieve a quality above 90 for 48 kHz
+decoding. For other sampling rates, it is normal for the quality metric to be lower
+(typically as low as 50 even for a good implementation) because of harmless mismatch with
+the delay and phase of the internal sampling rate conversion.

vectors. This can be done with
