This is now slightly improved and will work for example 
if the input colour space is rgb24.
Our ljpeg encoder supports yuv420p as an unofficial extension 
(needs -strict -2), so if your input stream is yuv420p 
(or 422 or 444), autodetection will accept it, but the codec 
init function will refuse the colour space if -strict experimental 
was not added.
