YV12 QuickTime Codec 1.0 b3

Updated: 2 Jan 2008

This codec probably won't be all that useful to anyone who isn't involved in developing image processing or compression/decompression software.
YV12 is a planar Y'CbCr 4:2:0 image format, and is often used as an intermediate format by reference codecs such as the ISO/IEC MPEG-4 video decoder reference code.

It's not a very good choice for end users, because it doesn't really compress video that much, and it stores pixel data in a manner that's not particularly convenient for playback.

That said, you might find this codec useful if you're a developer working in image processing. As mentioned above, YV12 is a planar format, meaning that for each image, the luma data for all pixels is stored consecutively, followed by the chroma data - this method of accessing pixel components is convenient for many image processing techniques.

The YV12 QuickTime Codec consists of the following QuickTime components
- YV12 Image Compressor
- YV12 Image Decompressor
- YV12 Movie Importer
- YV12 Movie Exporter

Helix YUV Codecs: are two almost identical Video for Windows compatible codecs for decompressing/viewing I420 and YV12 AVI files or the output of AviSynth scripts...

Lagarith Lossless Video Codec: offers excellent compression, the MSU Lossless Codec and FFV1 are the only codecs that outperform Lagarith in terms of compression.
