I am trying the new JPEG encoder in the 2013 release, and have noticed something odd.
When I encode YUV420 material, the JPEG image seems to have lower contrast and be brighter than the source material.
This seems like a colorspace issue, but I'm not sure if there is an option to change the behavior. [I don't want to re-color my raw source]
I am attaching a Big Buck Bunny (BBB) YUV420 raw, and the resulting JPEG output from sample_encoder.
It is tempting to point the fingers at my viewers, but the original BBB video my raw YV12 seem consistent, the raw was viewed using the '7yuv' tool.
I used the following command to go from raw to .jpg : sample_encode.exe jpeg -i bbbf.1080.yuv -o j.jpg -w 1920 -h 1080
Any help is appreciated.
I cannot seem to attach .yuv files, so here is Dropbox links:

Frame #1000, about 39 seconds in was used.
