I'm not a video guy so please bear with me if I get some terminology not
I was asked to convert a 4K video to YUV. So I used:
ffmpeg -i inputFile.mp4 -f rawvideo outputFile.yuv
Because the output file is raw video without a container, players like
mplayer cannot play this file without being given the frame size etc. on
the command line.
I was pointed to YUV4MPEG2
I looked at the output of ffmpeg -codecs, but I did not see anything
that looks like this, nor did I see anything that (to me) says it can
put YUV into a container.
Is there a way one can use ffmpeg to convert a video into YUV format and
put it into a container?
