But can we get an overall gain by using range coding over the coding
used in libtheora1.1.1.
I tried dumping tokens and coding it with the range coder given by
The ogv file i get from the theora which has the information, extra
bits and coded tokens(by VLC) is smaller than the file i get
from coding only tokens with the range coder.
Have anyone tried this? Or Anyone who can guide me where i am goin wrong?
