The right library is swscale, which is part of libav. For sample code 
have a look at output-example.c (in the path of libav). To convert the 
pixelformat first the source and destination format have to be 
initialized with

img_convert_ctx = sws_getContext(c->width, c->height,
                                            c->width, c->height,
                                             sws_flags, NULL, NULL, NULL);

look at the documentation for the variables: 

for every picture you have to converted the following function is used:

sws_scale(img_convert_ctx, tmp_picture->data, tmp_picture->linesize, 0, 
c->height, picture->data, picture->linesize);

All things that have to do with integer variables, overflows and other 
stuff are handled by the library, so it works very well.
