In this paper, we propose a method for texture replacement in video sequences at the encoder. Our method consists of removal of texture from selected regions of the original frames, analysis of the removed texture, synthesis of new texture, and mapping of the new texture back onto the segmented regions. Our proposed method yields significantly reduced bit rates of the compressed video sequences with the texture replaced as compared to those of the original sequences. Moreover, the video sequences with texture replacement are visually similar to the original sequences. Even more, our decoder-independent method is cost effective.
