This study develops a novel prediction algorithm to effectively save the computational complexity of discrete cosine transform (DCT), quantisation (Q), inverse Q (IQ), and inverse DCT (IDCT) in video encoding for H.264 applications. Based on the DC value of the DCT coefficients that is equal to the sum of residual data in the 4times4 sub-macroblock (sub-MB), a mathematical model is built to develop a prediction algorithm for reducing the computations in the DCT/Q/IQ/IDCT process. Experimental results and comparisons demonstrate that the proposed prediction algorithm significantly reduces the encoding time while incurring little additional overhead, and lowers the bit rate with little peak signal-to-noise ratio degradation.
