Simulation of Robust HEVC Decoding in presence of Data Loss

Simulation of Robust HEVC Decoding in presence of Data Loss
by Enrico Masala

This software decodes an HEVC-compliant bitstream applying some loss patterns as given in an input file. Please note that the software simulates the data loss (in a pretty realistic way) by operating on the UNCORRUPTED version of the bitstream. The basic idea is similar to the previous case that deals with AVC.
