	<title>Description</title>

	<para>This is a multi-planar, two-plane version of the YUV 4:2:0 format.
The three components are separated into two sub-images or planes.
<constant>V4L2_PIX_FMT_NV12M</constant> differs from <constant>V4L2_PIX_FMT_NV12
</constant> in that the two planes are non-contiguous in memory, i.e. the chroma
plane do not necessarily immediately follows the luma plane.
The luminance data occupies the first plane. The Y plane has one byte per pixel.
In the second plane there is a chrominance data with alternating chroma samples.
The CbCr plane is the same width, in bytes, as the Y plane (and of the image),
but is half as tall in pixels. Each CbCr pair belongs to four pixels. For example,
Cb<subscript>0</subscript>/Cr<subscript>0</subscript> belongs to
Y'<subscript>00</subscript>, Y'<subscript>01</subscript>,
Y'<subscript>10</subscript>, Y'<subscript>11</subscript>.
<constant>V4L2_PIX_FMT_NV12MT_16X16</constant> is the tiled version of
<constant>V4L2_PIX_FMT_NV12M</constant> with 16x16 macroblock tiles. Here pixels
are arranged in 16x16 2D tiles and tiles are arranged in linear order in memory.
<constant>V4L2_PIX_FMT_NV21M</constant> is the same as <constant>V4L2_PIX_FMT_NV12M</constant>
except the Cb and Cr bytes are swapped, the CrCb plane starts with a Cr byte.</para>

	<para><constant>V4L2_PIX_FMT_NV12M</constant> is intended to be
used only in drivers and applications that support the multi-planar API,
described in <xref linkend="planar-apis"/>. </para>

	<para>If the Y plane has pad bytes after each row, then the
CbCr plane has as many pad bytes after its rows.</para>

	<example>
	  <title><constant>V4L2_PIX_FMT_NV12M</constant> 4 &times; 4 pixel image</title>
