Thanks Again,
    I can think for another trick then..
== with video ==
in Video frames , we can use first 16 Pixel to encode slide number. We
can use CANVAS API to process individual frames (
each 16 pixel can be 0 or 1 (black and white). We can generate
slidenumber at client side. I need to find a way where I can push
slide number information in pixel.

Let me redefine my question again.

I want to generate a video where I can modify pixel information of
each frame. kind of dynamic filter. So first 16 pixel Or may be just
first pixel will carry the info.

Also, I know that compression lossy so I do not know what will happen
to this trick

== With audio ==
Audio can be mixed/merged with a lossless video of 16x1 or 1x1
dimension. Trick can work successfully. I use ffmpeg to to audio
streaming with icecast. now I need to search for generating 1x1 video
Any suggestion?
