>> meteors appear longer. Should work as follows:
>> For each pixel do:  Multiply the RGB values from the previous output
>> frame with a decay constant in the range [0..1], for example 0.95. Use
>> these RGB values for the next output frame. But if the RGB value from

> Implemented as lagfun filter.
> See ffmpeg-devel mailing list.

Tested and working very good. Here is an example of a meteor in real 
time, left side without and right side with lagfun filter:
