CYUV yuv pixel format


This FOURCC, allegedly registered by Creative Labs, is essentially a duplicate of UYVY. The only difference is that the image is flipped vertically, the first u_int16 in the buffer representing the bottom line of the viewed image. Note that the FOURCC is comprised of lower case characters (so much for the upper case convention !)

  Horizontal Vertical
Y Sample Period 1 1
V Sample Period 2 1
U Sample Period 2 1

Effective bits per pixel : 16

Positive biHeight implies bottom-up image (botton line first)
