Color blindness is estimated to affect around 9% of the population. Streaming media requires large bandwidth due to the size of the video which depends in part on the color information in the video. This disclosure describes techniques that leverage, with user permission, a user’s unique visual acuity to automatically adjust the parameters and the encoding of a video stream to incorporate suitably modified color information to reduce bandwidth and/or to improve quality of the video stream for the particular user.
