I am not sure there is such tool. At least VP8 is able to reconfigure
the resolution dynamically so it *may* work in the end. But the
current consensus is that for such things adaptive streaming is easier
to implement on the server/player side, even if there is just one
version of the stream in the end. There should be some form of
adaptive streaming in WebM already working in Chrome and Firefox that
you could play with.
