Feature Request: Superimpose picture with alpha channel



in Germany and other countries you can monitor your private ground with CCTV but it is illegal to monitor/record public ground or sensitive private areas. I would like to suggest an option overlay_img which loads an image e.g. in PNG format which - opacity depending on alpha channel values - will be overlayed over the image from the video source. Thus, if parts of the image contain sensitive areas, like public ground or e.g. a changing cabin in a shop, those areas can be just eliminated. Bringing the alpha channel into the whole also makes it possible to use the overlay image to embed a "watermark"
