[FFmpeg-user] Does converting to yuv444p by default make sense?

"yuv" itself is a misnomer. It's commonly understood to actually mean "YCbCr"
for the encoder. By the way, ffmpeg does not do the encoding on its own; it
uses x264. x264 calls it YCbCr and follows ITU-T's recommendation (H.264
Specs). See http://mewiki.project357.com/wiki/X264_Settings#colormatrix here
for yourself. By the way, bt709 is different from sRGB, but they do share
the same color primaries.
