in response to determining that the block size of the non-square block is less than the block size threshold, enabling an intra smooth filter and applying the enabled intra smoothing filter to blocks neighboring the current block to generate filtered blocks; and
performing intra prediction based on a coding tool that utilizes the angular intra prediction mode and the filtered blocks to decode the current block, the performing the intra prediction further including:
(i) determining whether the coding tool that utilizes the filtered blocks for performing the intra prediction supports the wide angle mode,
(ii) in response to the determination that the coding tool does not support the wide angle mode, (a) changing the angular intra prediction mode from the wide angle mode to another intra prediction mode included in the range of directions that is nearest to the wide angle mode, and (b) retrieving a sample according to the another intra prediction mode that is used by the coding tool for decoding the current block, and
(iii) in response to the determination that the coding tool does support the wide angle mode, retrieving a sample according to the wide angle mode that is used by the coding tool for decoding the current block.

CACHE KEY BASED REQUEST ROUTING

Verizon Digital Media Ser...

1. A device comprising:a non-transitory computer-readable medium storing a set of processor-executable instructions; and
one or more processors configured to execute the set of processor-executable instructions, wherein executing the set of processor-executable instructions causes the one or more processors to:
receive a request comprising a Uniform Resource Locator (“URL”);
parse a base portion from a first location in the URL, a first cache key from a second location in the URL, and a second cache key from a third location in the URL;
determine that the first cache key does not affect a request routing decision;
determine that the second cache key does affect the request routing decision;
select a server from a set of servers based on the base portion and the second cache key; and
distribute the request to the selected server.
