AFAIK YUV rendering is not part of the OpenGL1.4 specification so using this 
will likely make the code non-portable.
Any portable code will have to use the RGB colorspace resulting in not so 
good performance for video display... although an OpenGL video outupt 
plugin could be fun to have as it will make possible some neat and funky 
effects ;)
