ffmpeg and YV12 pixel format


I'm looking for advice on how to convert an uncompressed RGBA video in .avi container to YV12 format (YUV420p but the U and V channels are stored the other way around).

I can see the command "ffmpeg -pix_fmts" displays yuv420p but not YV12. I assume YV12 is not directly supported? Does anyone know of a workaround?

Thanks for your time.
