Video in Host Side

Converting images (png, jpg, etc) to YUV format

ffmpeg -f image2 -i test.png -pix_fmt yuv420p test.yuv


Converting AVI files to YUV format

To convert AVI to YUV you can use the lav2yuv program. In Ubuntu Linux this program is in mjpegtools package. This is the way to convert:

lav2yuv myfile.avi > myfile.yuv


Converting YUV video files to AVI (DivX)

Use the ffmpeg tool:

ffmpeg -s 176x144 -i kuuba_maisema_25fps_qcif.yuv -vcodec mpeg4 -sameq -aspect 4:3 ~/kuuba.avi


You need to specify the video dimensions (176 × 144), the video codec (mpeg4), and the aspect ratio (4:3).


Converting MP4 to AVI

Use the mencoder tool:

mencoder Bike1.mp4 -ovc lavc -oac lavc -o NewBike1.avi
