Okay, I've talked with one of the server guys and got some details on what
is being sent. The server just passes through the colour space that is used
by the camera, so it sends CCIR 601 format for both JPEG and MPEG. It
doesn't appear to set the "CS=ITU601" in the JPEG comment data that ffmpeg is
looking for though, so as a result ffmpeg picks the wrong pixel format.
I'll have to adjust this in my application as ffmpeg is doing the right thing
as far as it knows.
New patch attached that just sets color_range and leaves pixel format

Still think this is an issue though.
