[FFmpeg-devel] Selective video compression qualities

Hi all,

I am interested in encoding a compressed video of a basketball game,
wherein the players are compressed in high quality (high bitrate) and the
rest of the image (the crowds, the court) uses a lesser quality. I already
have a binary mask that indicates which parts of the video I would like to
retain in high quality.

I'd be grateful for for any advice on achieving this. Are there any video
codecs that support this feature? Which would be the best fit if I want to
develop it myself?
