Is there an active bug ticket regarding this? (config of the macroblock column)
Would like to see the PI actually being able to get what the level 4 spec says it should. 2048x1024 would be excellent.
It's so far down the priorities list I don't think it is being actively tracked - sorry.
You could check for or create an issue at https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/issues
, but it's not going to boost the priority.
We no longer have developers who know the intimate detail of the codec code, and it may well be the hardware itself that isn't capable of doing it. From extracting the motion vectors we know that we get an extra column of vectors, so it may be the setup there that either requires it or is wrong, but you're probably talking a couple of man days of time to determine if that is the case, and then you need to understand whether that is necessity or accident.
