2.7. Reserved Format Identifiers

These formats are not defined by this specification, they are just listed for reference and to avoid naming conflicts. If you want to register your own format, send an e-mail to the V4L mailing list https://listman.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/video4linux-list for inclusion in the videodev.h file. If you want to share your format with other developers add a link to your documentation and send a copy to the maintainer of this document, Michael Schimek , for inclusion in this section. If you think your format should be listed in a standard format section please make a proposal on the V4L mailing list.
