What does the tool produce?
A file that cannot be read by FFmpeg? What can read the file?
A data stream to stdout? What is it supposed to contain?
rawvideo? What are the supposed properties?
For rawvideo, apart from resolution, the colour space is 
required, if you don't know it, you can try them, see 
ffmpeg -pix_fmts
