Techopedia Explains Group Of Pictures
The philosophy is that each coded video stream has groups of
GOPs. GOPs include various types such as intra-coded pictures, predictive coded
pictures, I-predictive coded pictures and DC direct coded pictures. Encoders use
groups of pictures and other tools to render smoothly streaming video. Frame
rates and other metrics may also apply.
