I was trying to find if there is any way we can configure the encoder
with
actual YUV size and the required CROP rectangle. Incase the S_FMT on
CAPTURE
plane is ignored, will we ever be able to encode a bitstream with a
desired
crop parameters different than YUV WxH, for ex. the bitstream WxH could
be
320x192, whereas the CROP in SPS would suggest it to 320x180.
In my ex. the YUV is 320x192.

Firmware can support for case when width different than stride, without
any
additional interface requirement. Only when crop is different than YUV
dimension,
it would need the additional interface.
Please confirm if the dimensions from S_SELECTION CROP could be set to
firmware
as bitstream dimensions.

IIRC, Stan has done some experiments around the same. Would let him
share his
observations for this request.
