I am working on theora decoder in ffmpeg V0.5. When i try to decode a 422 or 444 ogg/ogv bit stream using ffmpeg, the output yuv is junk. When i checked the ffmpeg source code, i saw that a pixel format is hardcoded to PIX_FMT_YUV420P.

Does theora decoder in ffmpeg/libavcodec support decoding of YUV422/YUV444 mode bit streams?
