Then you just want to test the quality of the encoder and decoder.
I suggest that you look at another open source project, mpeg2dec,, which has an option to save raw YUV frames.

VLC's decoder isn't quite the same as libmpeg2, but all calculations
have been borrowed from libmpeg2, so I expect the quality to be
exactly the same.
