audio/format: add heuristic to estimate loss on format conversion
The added function af_format_conversion_score() can be used to select the best sample format to convert to in order to reduce loss and extra conversion work. It calculates a "loss" score when going from one format to another, and for each conversion that needs to be done a certain score is subtracted. Thus, if you have to convert from one format to a set of other formats, you can calculate the score for each conversion, and pick the one with the highest score. Conversion between int and float is considered the worst case. One odd consequence is that when converting from s32 to u8 or float, u8 will be picked. Test program used to develop this follows: #define MAX_FMT 200 struct entry { const char *name; int score; }; static int compentry(const void *px1, const void *px2) { const struct entry *x1 = px1; const struct entry *x2 = px2; if (x1->score > x2->score) return 1; if (x1->score < x2->score) return -1; return 0; } int main(int argc, char *argv[]) { for (int n = 0; af_fmtstr_table[n].name; n++) { struct entry entry[MAX_FMT]; int entries = 0; for (int i = 0; af_fmtstr_table[i].name; i++) { assert(i < MAX_FMT); entry[entries].name = af_fmtstr_table[i].name; entry[entries].score = af_format_conversion_score(af_fmtstr_table[i].format, af_fmtstr_table[n].format); entries++; } qsort(&entry[0], entries, sizeof(entry[0]), compentry); for (int i = 0; i < entries; i++) { printf("%s -> %s: %d \n", af_fmtstr_table[n].name, entry[i].name, entry[i].score); } } }
