Create a patch or plugin that will enhance the mjpeg-streamer application and will allow the overlaying of text onto the jpeg images captured by the application, often called a filter in video applications. e.g. A title, time or date stamp, description, etc.

Text overlay needs to be specifiable at the command line with options to specify a top and/or bottom line of text. Other command line/runtime options must include the text itself or a variable text source, color, size frame location (top and bottom, left center right justification). For example:

-text1 'this is the text' [--color blue] [--background white] [--tsize 10] [--position center] -text2 '$date' [--color white] [--background none] [--tsize 10] [--position center]

Source code for mjpeg-streamer can be found here:   [obscured]  -streamer.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/mjpg-streamer/

Additional source code with overlay features that may be useful can be found here:   [obscured]  /projects/webcamserver/files/webcam_server/0...
