Bug Description

When capturing from webcam, uvcapture converts the YUYV from the camera to RGB, which libjpeg in turn has to convert to YCbCr. It is much simpler (and faster) to convert YUYV to YCbCr, and tell libjpeg to use YCbCr as the input colour space, rather than RGB.

uvccapture patch by Herman Robak coming soon.
