[FFmpeg-devel] [RFC] DV encoding interface issues

A bug report by a user in #ffmpeg today (and my investigation) came up
with the following two issues:

1.  If a user is encoding DV video and his height, width, and pix_fmt
don't match one of the profiles, ffmpeg terminates with no error
message except "Video encoding failed," telling the user nothing about
what went wrong.

2.  Furthermore, if the user's pix_fmt is, for example, yuv420p, but
the height and width match an allowed profile (e.g. 1440x1080), it
will *still* terminate rather than perform the colorspace conversion.

What's the proper way to deal with these issues?
