this sounds like the way to go, then. These video files won't be played with a video player. Instead, they just need to be accessible using standard tools. Provided subtitle tracks don't impose severe constraints on the length of the binary data, this seems like a perfectly useful hack. I'm going to keep this question open a bit longer, but there's a good chance I'll accept your answer. Thanks =)

This is a pretty good idea. In principle, one should be able to integrate these files directly into a container file of some type (e.g. .mkv), no?

@gnat, screw it. I'll just remove it. No use getting in a gridlock.

@gnat, No offense taken =) The issue here is that "use library x" doesn't answer the main question which, again, is "which codecs support arbitrary data channels?". A library suggestion is relevant if and only if it follows an explanation of which codecs solve my problem. And again, I'd be happy to submit to the peer-review process, but that only happens if you (or someone else) submits an edit.

@gnat, I've edited my question to make it clear what the real question is. I think this is a fair compromise, no?

@gnat, no they would not, as they would be missing the essential bit of information: "this codec does what you want". If you'd like to edit my question to remove the bonus question bit, please feel free to do so and I will submit to the peer-review, but this is not a reason to downvote an otherwise appropriate question.

@gnat, with respect, your comment suggests you've misunderstood my question. This question relates to program design, specifically the kind of video format that is best adapted to my problem. The request for libraries is both secondary and incidental. As such, I would greatly appreciate it if you rescinded your downvote.

comment Detecting areas of isotropic vs anisotropic diffusion in a flood-fill (or similar) operation
@VitorBraga, I think I'm going to give your approach a shot -- I'm hoping Moore's law will help me out! The advantage is that my graph has fairly narrow passages, so I think I should get reasonably good results. A few questions: (1) How do you handle collisions with the environment with the non-traversible nodes? (2) Are there any optimizations or caveats that I should keep in mind?

comment Detecting areas of isotropic vs anisotropic diffusion in a flood-fill (or similar) operation
@VitorBraga, are you suggesting a sort of 2D histogram of walker collisions? I like that idea. It seems very expensive and also doesn't give the diffusion direction, but the latter isn't really a problem. I'll have to toy with this.
