Hi Mr Eugen
why you state that this is "approximately" PIX_FMT_YUYV422 ? I read
libavutil/pixfmt.h but from this header and from  the source code example
it's not clear to me how I should insert data.  I start from a raw image and
would compress it in MPEG2 4:2:2 format.  Where I can find some examples ?
