You could achieve the same by extending libavfilter and using commands
to send interactive commands to filters. For example check my patch on
ffmpeg-devel to change crop parameters, as for what regards changing
overlay you could connect two movie sources and disable/enable the
active overlay (check timeline), or maybe implement a switcher
controlled by a command. Dynamically changing movie input is not
currently supported.
