DM3730 h264 encoding input formats
I'm using the dvsdk for the DM3730, v4.03.00.06 on Linux. I will be using the h264 encoder on a video stream and was hoping for some clarification on the input requirements.
Reading the User Guide PDF (ti-dvsdk_dm3730-evm_04_03_00_06/codecs-omap3530_4_02_00_00/packages/ti/sdo/codecs/h264enc/docs/H264_encoder_DM3730_UserGuide.pdf), I found the list of input formats, but it seems that only YUV420 planar and YUV422 interleaved are avaliable (the rest are marked 'Not supported in this version of h264 Encoder').
The camera we are using provides YUV422 data in YUYV format. Is this compatible with the YUV422 interleaved format?
For another aspect of the project, it would be beneficial for us to store the image in planar format, and use encoder's the YUV420 planar input format. To convert our input to this format (aside from splitting the Y, U and V components) would we simply be able to throw away every other line of UV data?
Thanks in advance!
edit: Can anyone confirm that these actually are the only two available input formats? (YUV420 planar and YUV422 interleaved)It would be really great if YUV422 planar was available.
