Transparency and video

Quick question - I'm looking to have irregularly shaped video with
transparent areas - AFAIK this is not supported in Rev's Player object, all
though ink effects are I'm not sure how I would use them here. What I can do
I think is one of the following:

   1. Create a "video stack" with a mask and overlay this on a background
   2. Use QuartzComposer on OSX and use the player object to play the Quartz
   Composer file
   3. Use a series of stills and flip them to simulate video

Any thoughts?
