[Libav-user] Copying pixels directly from AVFrame->data, possible alignment error.

Hi Jepser,

I am not an expert on this (@all please correct what I err upon), but 
AFAIK the data is padded per line! that's why you also have a linesize 
data member of AVFrame:
So in other words, say you have a 6x6 frame in GRAY8, this would mean 
that AVFrame->data[0] would show for the first 2 lines of the frame:
item0 item1 item2 item3 item4 item5 unused0 unused1
item6 item7 item8 item9 item10 item11 unused2 unused3
assuming that AVFrame->linesize[0] = 8!

Also, a frame in AV_PIX_FMT_BGR24 encoding would map to
AVFrame->data[0] being the B channel
AVFrame->data[1] being the G channel
AVFrame->data[2] being the R channel

Translating this to your code example, this would give:

uint64_t src_i = (xx+(yy*src_camera_width))*3;
r = f->pAVFrame->data[2][yy*f->pAVFrame->linesize[2]+xx];
g = f->pAVFrame->data[1][yy*f->pAVFrame->linesize[1]+xx];
b = f->pAVFrame->data[0][yy*f->pAVFrame->linesize[0]+xx];

assuming that you f->pAVFrame was already filled by some other function.
Crossing fingers that I got everything right.
