yuv2lav - encodes lavtool's raw YUV frame streams into MJPEG files SYNOPSIS
yuv2lav [-f a|A|q|m] [-q num] [-b num] [-I num] [-m num] [-v num] [-w file] -o output-file DESCRIPTION
yuv2lav is a simple MJPEG encoder for raw YUV frame streams as they are emitted by lav2yuv(1) or lavpipe(1), for example. It reads its input from stdin and is capable of writing AVI and Quicktime. OPTIONS
The command line options allow to specify the output file name, JPEG encoding quality and the amount of memory that will be allocated for JPEG compressed data. -o output-file This (compulsorary) option sets the name of the file that yuv2lav will write its output to. If the output file contains a % (e.g. file%02d.avi), the output will be written to multiple files in case this is necessary (file00.avi, file01.avi and so on). -f a|A|q This sets the output file format, which has to be one of a - for AVI file output, A - for AVI with reversed fields, q - for Quicktime output or AVI with reversed field of course only makes sense if yuv2lav's feed is an interlaced video source and should only be needed if you experience frame reversal problems in your output. If you don't use that option yuv2lav will set the output format to AVI if the last 3 char are avi, or to Quicktime if you use mov. If you use the -f option it overides the setting in the filename -q num This option specifies the JPEG encoding quality as passed through to libjpeg. The default value is 80, num must lie within 24...100 inclusive (think of it as percentage values, although with a lossy compression algorithm like JPEG, keeping 100% of the original quality is of course not really possible). -b num This option specifies the size of the buffer (in kBytes) that yuv2lav allocates in order to store the compressed JPEG data in it. The default value (256k) is perfectly enough for 100% quality full sized PAL/NTSC, but if you want to compress Super-Mega-HDTV or if you are low on memory, you can use this option to suit your needs. -m num This is the maximum size (in MB) per file. Normally this depends on the output file type. -I num Force a specific interlacing type. 0 means no interlacing, 1 means top-field-first, 2 means bottom-field-first. -w file This is the WAV file containing audio data to be combined with the video stream into the output file. -v num Verbosity level. 0 means only print error messages, 2 prints full debug output. -? Display a synopsis of the command syntax. EXAMPLES
lav2yuv movie.avi | yuv2lav -fq -q 30 lowbitrate.qt would recompress movie.avi as a low bit rate Quicktime file. lavpipe input.pli | yuv2lav -q80 output.avi would save the movie assembled by lavpipe as a single AVI file. BUGS

jpeg2yuv - Convert jpeg images to the yuv format. SYNOPSIS
jpeg2yuv [-b num] [-f num] [-I num] [-A ratio] [-L num] [-n num] [-l num] [-j filename] DESCRIPTION
jpeg2yuv decompresses a sequence of JPEG files and pipes the image data to stdout as a YUV4MPEG2 stream. Any JPEG format supported by lib- jpeg can be read. stdout will be filled with the YUV4MPEG2 movie data stream, so be prepared to pipe it on to mpeg2enc or to write it into a file. OPTIONS
jpeg2yuv accepts the following options: -b num Frame offset: skip output of the first 'num' frames. (default: 0) -f num Set the frame rate of stream accepts the same numbers. No default, this option has to be specified. -A ratio Sample aspect ratio. Default is square pixels (1:1) -I num interlacing mode: p = none / progressive t = top field first b = bottom field first No default, this option has to be specified. -L num 0 = non-interlaced (two successive fields per JPEG file) 1 = interlaced fields -l num Specifies the number of loops (default: 0 loops ) When this option is not used the given range of images is only processed once. If you use this option with num of -1 jpeg2yuv will loop forever writing the image to stdout. When you use n > 0 it will loop n-times till it finishes. -n num Specifies the number of frames to process. (default: all = -1) -j {1}%{2}d{3} Read JPEG frames with the name components as follows: {1} JPEG filename prefix (e g: picture_ ) {2} Counting placeholder (like in C, printf, eg 06 )) {3} File extension. Something like this: .jpg A correct description of the files could look like this: picture_%06d.jpg If this option is omited, the filenames are read from stdin. For example: $ls *jpg | jpeg2yuv -f 25 -I p > result.yuv -R 1 or 0 rescale YUV color values from 0-255 to 16-235 (default: 1) -v num Verbosity level (0, 1 or 2) BUGS
The frame rate description seems not to be up to date. The NTSC integer ratios seem not to be supported. As a workaround specify a PAL (25) or FILM (24) and set the right frame rate in mpeg2enc with the -F option. AUTHOR
