raw2yuv - Convert a Raw DV stream to Raw YUV.
raw2yuv [ options ]
raw2yuv converts a Raw DV stream received on stdin into the simple
uncompressed planar 4:2:0 Y'CbCr format, as used by the MJPEG Tools.
Output to an audio file in parallel. Type is based on the exten-
sion and currently only wav and mp2 are provided. If you wish to
have more control over the mp2 file generated, export to a wav
first and then convert the wav as required.
Deinterlacing type - 0 is none, 1 provides very poor deinterlac-
ing (default: 0). 2 results in no interlacing, but a 4:1:1 sub-
sampled stream (native NTSC DV) which can be processed by
y4mscaler. More types will be supported in the future.

This slightly overlaps with the smil2yuv(1) tool. The distinction is
that raw DV is expected on stdin, so it comes a useful tool for
transcoding raw DV producing tools, but without the necessity to cap-
ture to a file first.
NB: This really is not intended as an option for use with live raw pro-
ducers (such as dvconnect or xwd2raw) unless:
1. You have a very fast machine (and I mean very fast... a my p4 2gighz
can't do much with this without dropping a lot of frames in the yuv
2. You don't care about dropping frames :-).
What will work are non-real time raw sources like ppm2raw(1)and
