[Libav-user] Decoding h264 (NV12) stream from NVENC

So you basically say that the decoder 'knows' to detect interleaved UV in
NV12 UV plane and decode it correctly to yuv420p without any hints from the
Then why my YUV frame is corrupted? How can I detect where is the problem?
I also found this SO answer regarding h264 streaming from NVENC.
And I currently don't set those params for encoder.Do I have to?
