Are you sure this compression format makes any sense whatsoever?
You get a 1:6 compression (exactly, compared to RGB888), but
also horrible compression artefacts.
Simply going to half the resolution in x and y with YUV420 gives
you 1:8 compression and I would bet it would even look better.
At least I have a hard time seeing how it could look much worse.
