    When we digitize an analog format we capture in YUV uncompressed with a quicktime wrapper. In the Video section it says format: yuv. But in the General section it says the format is MPEG-4. Why MPEG-4 and not YUV?

     
  • YUV is the format of the video stream.
    MPEG-4 is the format of the container. QuickTime is a flavor of MPEG-4. what you call "wrapper" is the container, so it is in "general" section, dedicated to the container information, in MediaInfo. YUV would not fit (it is not a the format of the container/wrapper, it is the format of a video stream).
