Standard Mediasubtype GUIDs

Standard Mediasubtype GUIDs

Mediasubtype GUIDs are used to define color formats for FrameTypeInfo or as uncompressed video formats in MediaStreamSink::create.
Most subtypes have an equivalent in tColorformatEnum.
For a description of the pixel organization in the various color formats, have a look at the example Accessing an Image Buffer.
Constant Description
MEDIASUBTYPE_RGB24 24-bit color format, tColorformatEnum::eRGB24
MEDIASUBTYPE_RGB32 32-bit color format, tColorformatEnum::eRGB32
MEDIASUBTYPE_RGB8 8-bit grayscale format, tColorformatEnum::eRGB8 and tColorformatEnum::eY8
MEDIASUBTYPE_UYVY Color format, tColorformatEnum::eUYVY
MEDIASUBTYPE_RGB555 16-bit color format, tColorformatEnum::eRGB555
MEDIASUBTYPE_RGB565 16-bit color format, tColorformatEnum::eRGB565
MEDIASUBTYPE_Y800 8-bit grayscale format, tColorformatEnum::eY800. In contrast to RGB8, the images are stored top-down.
MEDIASUBTYPE_BY8 8-bit format containing a bayer pattern, tColorformatEnum::eBY8. See Debayering for information on how to handle this format.
MEDIASUBTYPE_YGB0 10-bit grayscale format, tColorformatEnum::eYGB0
MEDIASUBTYPE_YGB1 10-bit grayscale format, tColorformatEnum::eYGB1
