for input either
X -> 8bit planar YUV
X -> horizontal scaling -> internal YUV (which is more then 8bit per sample,
i forgot how much thugh, maybe 12 or 15 bits), internal YUV also has a
silly limitation that chroma must be subsampled by 2 relative to luma
if you can fix this it would be very welcome, some half finished mmx
code to do full hoizontal chroma is there under #if 0, flags to turn
full chroma on are also there, and the c code might even work with
it, or maybe not i dunno ...
for output you need a internal YUV -> vertical scaling -> X
the scaling code is already there in macros so you just need to add the
conversation into it ...
all IIRC, i probably forgot some minor details ...

yes the code was broken, should be less broken now :)

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
