Hello.  I have an issue with using yadif and OpenCL (opencl with the latest
git updates) in combination.

Using the latest ffmpeg master built as at 2017.11.26, I'm having trouble
deciphering what the error messages means and, more importantly, what to do
about them.

Changing from -vf to -filter_complex did nothing (I had to try). The main
error message seems to be
"Impossible to convert between the formats supported by the filter "

I have tried to insert "format=" and "scale" before/between/after yadif and
unsharp_opencl but to no avail.

I wonder, could it be something to do with needing hwupload/hwdownload/hwmap
or is that a red herring ?

What am I doing wrong ?  Advice welcomed.
