Ok, tried now, didn't help. However, by modifying codecs.conf the problems
gone away (in old stable version (too)). I added line:
	fourcc yv12 I420
in the entry "videocodec rawi420" (note: it's space not comma).

Adding line "fourcc yv12" under entry "videocodec rawyv12" works,
but the colors are wrong! So, fourcc "yv12" is synonym for fourcc
"I420" but _not_ for fourcc "YV12" (note capitals). Surprising.

Anyway, everything works now perfectly, including broadcast2000 and

Tried it, no luck :(
