I have my own code that generated the QVideoFrames. It's GStreamer 1.2
based and with a videotestsrc I can generate just about any format.

It's not that easy to test for most people anyways. You need a source that
changes the format while streaming. I have full control of the pipeline, so
that's easy to test for me.
