Well the alternative would be if I could convert from v210 (which I understand more as a pixel format than a codec actually)
to a planar format with libswscale so I don’t need to setup another decoder, prepare frames and packets, etc …

As a newbie user I would’ve not expected this extra decode step.
But if that’s the way it is..
