Description Nicolas Dufresne (ndufresne) 2018-01-16 17:28:28 UTC
I just randomly stumble across that RGB16 no longer works:

  gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc ! video/x-raw,format=RGB16 ! glimagesink

GL error from API id:7, GL_INVALID_OPERATION in glTexSubImage2D(incompatible format = GL_RGB565, type = GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT_5_6_5)
