OK, unfortunately 10 bit is unsupported by ffmpeg atm. I even wonder if
this is feasible with current system, since AVPicture data is uint8_t.

Anyway, there is no real reason to export 10 bit uncompressed since no
ffmpeg encoder is 10 bit capable. Export in 8 bit format, that should be
perfectly supported.
