Looking for some files to delete to make space on my HD I found a file called stream.yuv occupying more than 15 GB. What is it? Can I delete it?

Here's a description of what the .yuv file extension is for image files: Image format that stores colors as Y, U, and V values; Y stores the luminance (or brightness) and U and V store the chrominance (or color) components; can be used to store image color information more accurately than the typical RGB format.


And for video files: Video file encoded in the YUV format; stores a sequence of YUV images as a single video file (see above description); may be saved in YUV 4:2:0, 4:2:2, 4:4:4 formats; some YUV video files may be decoded by MPEG-4 and H.264 decoders.


These types of files might be opened with something like XnView for image files and MPlayer for video files.






hope this helps.
