[Ffmpeg-devel] Swapping lines in RGB24 image

Hi !

I mean that if the image has 256 lines, line 0 in ffmpeg should be line 255 in OpenGL, line 1 shold be swapped to line 254 etc.

Basically you can say that OpenGL uses a vertical flipped image. instead of issue a flipImage in my code I would like to convert the image on the fly to a vertical flipped image.

This is the case for OpenGL. DirectX doesn't need flipping.

You can of cource flip texture coordinates in your model when you are using video textures, but this makes the model uncompatible with normal textures as thy get flipped in that case.
