raw2yuv(1) Convert a Raw DV stream to a YUV4MJPEG stream.


raw2yuv [ options ]


raw2yuv converts a Raw DV stream received on stdin into the simple uncompressed planar 4:2:0 Y'CbCr format, as used by the MJPEG Tools.


-a audio-out-file
Output to an audio file in parallel. Type is based on the extension and currently only wav and mp2 are provided. If you wish to have more control over the mp2 file generated, export to a wav first and then convert the wav as required.
-i type
Deinterlacing type - 0 is none, 1 provides very poor deinterlacing (default: 0). 2 results in no interlacing, but a 4:1:1 subsampled stream (native NTSC DV) which can be processed by y4mscaler. More types will be supported in the future.

This slightly overlaps with the smil2yuv(1) tool. The distinction is that raw DV is expected on stdin, so it comes a useful tool for transcoding raw DV producing tools, but without the necessity to capture to a file first.

NB: This really is not intended as an option for use with live raw producers (such as dvconnect or xwd2raw) unless:

1. You have a very fast machine (and I mean very fast... a my p4 2gighz can't do much with this without dropping a lot of frames in the yuv output);
2. You don't care about dropping frames :-).

What will work are non-real time raw sources like ppm2raw(1)and image2raw(1).
