Great, thanks :)

Yeah, sorry, I meant weight. Would that make any difference? Can we
have situations where both the denominator and the weight would be
set, with the weight set to 128?

I've checked in the libva and ffmpeg, and libva uses a short, while
ffmpeg uses an int, both for the weight and offset. For consistency I
guess we could change both to shorts just like libva?

What do you think?
