>bpp? bpp is totally meaningless.


Sometimes when I open a video with mplayer I can see :
VIDEO:  [XVID]  1280x720  12bpp  23,976 fps  3199,1 kbps (390,5 kbyte/s)

and with SNOW I have :
VIDEO:  [SNOW]  512x368  24bpp  25,000 fps  288,7 kbps (35,2 kbyte/s)

Is there a way to drop from 24 to 12bpp with SNOW ?

Maybe I do not understand the meaning of BPP, if this is the case then can you explain what is it ?
