  Hello Carl

the error message is shown in red, right :) It was my mistake.

I ignored it frivolously, because I was used to be ffv1 always choose 
automatically the coder 1 if the pixfmt is higher than 8 bit, because:

if I choose yuv pixel formats with more than 8bit like these examples :

than the ffv1 encoder automatically forces to CODER 1 as seen here:

     [ffv1 @ 00000000003a6040] bits_per_raw_sample > 8, forcing coder 1

Now I am testing rgb pixelformats higher than 8bit like "gbrp10le" 
(which I did not before), and it does not change automatically to CODER 1:

     [ffv1 @ 00000000003a6020] bits_per_raw_sample of more than 8 needs 
-coder 1 currently (IN RED COLOR)

Do you have any idea why ffv1 only changes the coder automatically in 
yuv pixel formats?

Best Regards
