Description

Typically, on Linux with X11 we will only need BGRX so there is no need to keep track of the conversions to and from BGR, RGB or RGBX, etc

Too difficult, most combinations are valid, they're just not very useful.

ie: when we have BGRX to h264 using x264 (or nvenc) then that's what we'll use, but going via YUV420P and a CSC step is also a valid option (which uses less bandwidth and CPU). We never want to use XRGB to h264, because that would require a BGRX to XGRB CSC step, but we don't know in advance that there are going to be better options..
