  Thanks for fixing this! But I'm not entirely sure it really does
exactly that. So, now, if dshow-croma is specified, it will enumerate only
metiatypes compatible with specified chroma, but then again will add
*hardcoded* I420 to the list which will likely be selected due to its
priority. Some next poor guy might bang his head against this issue

  Well, I guess the current aim is to fix reported issue and don't
remove the previous behavior completely, possibly because it was known
to solve some issue previously and cannot be readily tested now. But
what device needs that anyway?
