    reference to this: https://www.videohelp.com/tools/Lagarith-Lossless-Video-Codec

    Lagarith is a lossless video codec. Lagarith offers excellent compression. Lagarith is able to operate in several colorspaces - RGB24, RGB32, RGBA, YUY2, and YV12.
    And that's where the description should end.

    ... but it doesn't.


    This is all technobabble:

    Also, Lagarith will never down-sample video, preventing inadvertent quality loss.
    This doesn't mean anything at all.
    "down-sample" how? Resolution? Colorspace? What, exactly? Without context, it's just gibberish.

    For DVD video, the compression is typically only 10-30% better than Huffyuv.
    "for DVD Video" doesn't mean anything at all.
    DVD-Video format is strictly MPEG-2, so any reference against Huffyuv or Lagarith is nonsense

    However, for high static scenes or highly compressible scenes, Lagarith significantly outperforms Huffyuv.
    This is easily debatable. The tradeoff is CPU. For capturing, that's not a benefit.
    It's also a good bit slower.
    This part of the description is propaganda that should be removed.

    ...

    The current full description appears to be confusing newbies.

    And it's not true regarding colorspace. If you give it RGB (4:4:4) and have it set to YUY2 or YV12 mode it will downsample the chroma channels to 4:2:2 or 4:2:0.
