RPR - Use of reference picture PPS pointers

Reported by: bheng Owned by:

Component: VTM Version: VTM-6.1
Keywords: Cc: ksuehring, XiangLi, fbossen, jvet@…


In several places, the RPR code accesses the PPS of the reference picture with code such as the following:


Unfortunately, these PPS pointers are not safe. Specifically, if the reference picture's PPS ID is reused in the interim, these pps-> pointers point to garbage values. This can crash the decoder.

I would recommend that all of the values used by RPR (width, height, cropping window) be stored with the refPic itself, rather than relying on these PPS pointers, which can be invalid.
