    The issue with the feature is that it's actually not a small one.

    Imagine we do it for a second: let the user set up privacy masks universally for any camera.

    Once the user setup the privacy mask it's easy to display the privacy mask on the thick client. 

    But what about the web, what about the exported video, what about video exported via API? For all these cases to provide the masks we need to transcode the video. Now, what if the server is weak(Atom or ARM)?

    If we do it only for the thick client we sort of misleading users with expectations. 
    Any Idea of how to work around the issues I mentioned? Or maybe at least fins a good way not to mislead the users if transcoding is not an option?
