[FFmpeg-user] V210 is a packet format but ffmpeg shows always yuv422p10le (planar?) - or how to read a V210.raw stream with ffmpeg?

Very, very generally: No, this is the reason why 
a decoder is needed: Some applications produce 
an incorrect framesize for a given resolution.

But in the case of a given application, the 
framesize has to be constant for a given 
resolution: If it is not, the file cannot be read.

(And the framesize is of course defined by the 
specification for a given resolution but as said, 
some encoders use an incorrect stride.)

You can definitely use this syntax to read the 
raw files from your capture card, but is should 
be way easier to use -f dshow instead.
