YV12 yuv pixel format

This is the format of choice for many software MPEG codecs. It comprises an NxM Y plane followed by (N/2)x(M/2) V and U planes.

Y Sample Period11
V Sample Period22
U Sample Period22

Positive biHeight implies top-down image (top line first)

ATI says they have a download which contains this codec but I can’t find it on their site. If you would like something similar for Quicktime, try here.
