V4L2 YUYV matches YUY2 in GStreamer. This is the most common webcam
format, so it's better to try and remember. In general though, don't
add format= in your filter, GStreamer will figure-it out for your. You
may need a videoconvert element between the v4l2src and x264enc due to
format incompatibility. See gst-inspect-1.0 x264enc for more details.
