I searched a little on how to convert this on Debian GNU/Linux and the
repository [1]. I am not satisfied with the result yet, but if someone
else wants to try or knows about this here it is.

1. using mjpegtools
# ppmtoy4m from mjpegtools, unfortunately it just take ppm files
convert testpic.png testpic.ppm
ppmtoy4m -F 50:1 -A 59:54 -I t -L -n 1000 -r testpic.ppm > output.y4m
# there are a lot of artifacts

2. using mplayer

I just found [2] but I did not find an option to specify to only take
this one file/image.
