    1 The Smoke Codec
    2 ---------------
    3 
    4 This is a very simple compression algorithm I was toying with when doing a
    5 Java based player. Decoding a JPEG in Java has acceptable speed so this codec
    6 tries to exploit that feature. The algorithm first compares the last and the 
    7 new image and finds all 16x16 blocks that have a squared difference bigger than
    8 a configurable threshold. Then all these blocks are compressed into an NxM JPEG.
    9 The quality of the JPEG is inversely proportional to the number of blocks, this
   10 way, the picture quality degrades with heavy motion scenes but the bitrate stays
   11 more or less constant.
   12 Decoding decompresses the JPEG and then updates the old picture with the new
   13 blocks.

   17 ----
   18 - make format extensible
   19 - motion vectors
   20 - do some real bitrate control
