AD Vision Sensor GUI - YUV file format

What specific YUV file format are the videos in the AD Vision Sensor GUI recorded in? When I play the recorded videos with the AD YUV player, YUV420 works. However, when playing the same videos with YUV Deluxe, it needs to be read in as UYVY to work properly. 

My main objective is to analyze the YUV files in MATLAB. However, I'm running into file format issues, both when 1) reading into MATLAB because they aren't YUV420 and 2) when trying to convert them to YUV420.

    Hi Stephanie,

    My apologies, as it looks like there is a bug in the AD YUV player. The correct format should be YUV422 or UYVY as you have correctly pointed out but it is displaying that as YUV420. I will file a bug for this and fix this in the next release. Thanks for letting us know.

    The correct format is Interleaved YUV422 or UYVY. You can run your analysis with this.
