Could you add UT-video, huffyuv and x264 lossless to this test script?
(And whatever else lossless/usefull in ffmpeg)

Usage could be:

lossless_test.sh file.mov
lossless_test (without parameters it would use random noise)

>>> For your steps 1 and 2 I created a shell script to use ffmpeg to pull from /dev/random to produce 1 second rawvideo files at different combinations of frame size and pixel format. Each random source file is then decoded to produce an md5. Then the random source is encoded with ffv1 version 1 and 3 which are then each used to produce a framemd5 output.

>>> Also the rgb24 encodings are lossy, but this is intentional, right? Is ffv1 only lossless with YUV pixel formats?

> Ack, my bad. I missed the fact that ffv1 encodes rgb24 data as bgr0. The framemd5's of the rgb24 and bgr0 data naturally mismatched and my test flagged this as lossy. When I converted the ffv1 encoded bgr0 back to rgb24, the output was identical to the source. Sorry about that.
