Abstract—Due to the problems of the new generation of video coding standard HEVC (High-Efficiency Video Coding), such as high computational complexity and the large computation, This paper proposes a fast inter-mode decision algorithm based on image texture features and by using Sobel operator the edge features are extracted from CU which is partitioned by simulation, and then the final partitioning size of CU is determined by the texture features contained in the current CU block of simulation partitioning. By using this method, both of the traverse layers of CU depth and the times of inter predictive coding are reduced. Thus the computational complexity of coding terminal is lowered effectively. The experimental results showed that, compared with inter-mode decision algorithm in HEVC standard, the time of this method is saved 45.35% on average with little loss of coding efficiency and PSNR (peak signal-noise ratio).
