 I create AVI with the following command.
 ffmpeg -i "input.avi" -pix_fmt gray16 -c:v rawvideo output.avi
 I get a warning:
 [avi @ 0000000002bef880] gray16le rawvideo cannot be written to avi,
 output file will be unreadable
 The file has fourcc 0x00000000 and is recognized by video players as

 I think it is more correct to record fourcc 'Y16 ' (0x20363159).
