If can help:
Use of av_image_fill_pointers() helps to allocate planes continuously
instead of separate allocation for each plane,
which can end up in very different start locations of the allocated memory.
Continuous allocation can be better for performance and/or functional sides
of the operations,
example of Intel's HW - QSV,
which is assuming Y/UV planes to be continuously allocated.
