    The bit you quoted, which also may have influenced Michael's description, is actually the documentation for the filter's tripod parameter, which indeed tries to simulate or improve being tripod-mounted, and is by default 0. The existing non-OpenCL vidstab* filters offer a similar option, and I believe take a two-pass multi-frame approach.

    Hmmm... the C version seems only to consider the previous frame. For stabilization during transcoding, you really want to do this 2-pass, so you can use a higher-order filter to smooth the camera motion.

    The C version is also just unnecessarily slow. Instead of using Harris features and RANSAC, it's doing block-based motion estimation (and not even using any optimized library routines!) with some kind of voting. It looks like whoever did the OpenCL "port" did more of a rewrite, addressing that in the process. The result should not only be faster, but also better. I hope they back-port their improvements. FFmpeg should really try to keep the accelerated & generic versions the same, and add regression tests for checking that.

    Also, I wonder why it's hard-coded to use sampler_linear_mirror. I'd make than an option. They don't seem to be doing anything about gamma, either.

    "Simulates a tripod by preventing any camera movement whatsoever from the original frame."

    I'll believe that when I see it. Helps sure, prevents? Even the best out there can't prevent it unless you are already locked off on a tripod in which case there isn't much use for stabilization.. Still a nice feature add.

    That's a really cool addition. I'm not sure how much deshake adds to transcoding time but I'm sure this OpenCL implementation must dramatically speed it up on high res (1440p+) videos, and maybe 1080p videos too if you've got a laptop CPU.
