RE: Saving YUVY image from V4L2 buffer to file


Many thanks for the quick reply.

Yes I'm getting some sort of an image. When I was experimenting I managed to get an image but in grayscale & showing multiple copies of the same image covering the top half of the image. I imagine it was distorted because I was not converting to RGB correctly.

All the best,
