[FFmpeg-user] Does converting to yuv444p by default make sense?

Did you really just implement that or is it already there? Because I don't
see it in a recent-ish post-2.0 build.
I don't think it needs to be anything more than a warning, because the
conversion will work regardless.

By the way, I wouldn't go as far to say "outdated media players" – can you
name a few players that support it?
