Not a new bug, I'm simply using FFmpeg in a way that nobody never did
(read: weird formats).
static av_cold int raw_init_decoder(AVCodecContext *avctx)
RawVideoContext *context = avctx->priv_data;
if (avctx->codec_tag == MKTAG('r','a','w',' '))
avctx->pix_fmt = find_pix_fmt(pix_fmt_bps_mov, avctx->bits_per_coded_sample);
else if (avctx->codec_tag)
avctx->pix_fmt = find_pix_fmt(ff_raw_pix_fmt_tags, avctx->codec_tag);
else if (avctx->bits_per_coded_sample)
avctx->pix_fmt = find_pix_fmt(pix_fmt_bps_avi, avctx->bits_per_coded_sample);
find_pix_fmt() returns PIX_FMT_YUV420P when pix_fmt_bps_avi doesn't
contain an entry corresponding to avctx->bits_per_coded_sample, I'm
testing with bgr444 and there are no entry corresponding to bps = 12.
