 @end example
+The image muxer supports the .Y.U.V image file format. This format is
+special in that that each image frame consists of three files, for
+each of the YUV420P components. To read or write this image file format,
+specify the name of the '.Y' file. The muxer will automatically open the
+'.U' and '.Y' files as required.
 @section mpegts
 MPEG transport stream muxer.
