Subject[PATCH 2/3] media: videodev2.h: clarify v4l2_pix_format_mplane.sizeimage docs when to set to zero
sizeimage field should be set to zero for unused planes, even when
v4l2_pix_format_mplane.num_planes is smaller then the index of planes.

Signed-off-by: Helen Koike <>


I caught this with v4l2-compliance, which throws an error if we dirty
planes, even if invalid, so I would like to make it clear in the docs.
