4:2:0 planar is 12 bits per pixel on average.  Each pixel has 8 bits of
luminance, and for every four pixels there are 8 bits of each of Cr and Cb
chrominance.  There are several possible ways the chroma samples can be
placed relative to the luma samples.  Codec specs should say which variants
they use.
