All existing video coding standards are based on block-wise motion compensation and block-wise DCT. At high levels of quantization, block-wise motion compensation and transform produces blocking artifacts in the decoded video, a form of distortion to which the human visual system is very sensitive. The latest video coding standard, H.264/AVC, introduces a deblocking filter to reduce the blocking artifacts. However, there is still visible distortion after the filtering when compared to the original video. In this paper, we propose a non-conventional filter to further reduce the distortion and to improve the decoded picture quality. Different from conventional filters, the proposed filter is based on a machine learning algorithm (decision tree). The decision trees are used to classify the filter's inputs and select the best filter coeffcients for the inputs. Experimental results with 4 × 4 DCT indicate that using the filter holds promise in improving the quality of H.264/AVC video sequences.
