Not really. Saying something is YUV (or rather Y'CbCr) doesn't
actually tell you the color space. It just tells you whether the
information is encoded as R+G+B or Y+Cb+Cr. How you convert between
them is another matter. You need to know the gamma, color primaries,
chroma siting for sub-sampled YCbCr formats, etc.
