A codec specifically for B&W videos? I think not. There's certainly no
reason for it. Digital video codecs seperate color (chroma) from B&W
(luma) information before encoding, and handle them separately, anyhow.
If encoding B&W videos shows artifacts, you'll see them with color
videos as well.

You won't get a different response.
