Oh yes you can, and it's quite a simple process. But first let's understand what is watermarking and why it is being done. Watermarking is a method to secure your videos on the internet. When you watermark your video with your brand logo or name, it cannot be removed and whoever watches the video will know its origin. This way your videos are safe and free from piracy. In dire circumstances even if your video is stolen it will still be played with your logo on it. 

So let's take a look at how to set this layer of security on your video in the Private Media Channel:

  • Click on General Settings > Video Watermark

  • First select 'Enable Watermark'

  • You will see two options: Static and Dynamic

What does Static and Dynamic do? 

In Static Watermark, the watermark in the form of a image stays at the top left corner of your video. In Static Watermarking, it is advisable to use a logo. Preferably, 24-bit PNG images. Make sure that the logo that you are using is transparent so that it will blend neatly with the video. 

In Dynamic Watermarking, the watermark moves around throughout the duration of the video. When you click on Dynamic you will notice three types of watermarking options appear:

Username - When you click on this, the watermark that appears on the video is your username in the Private Media Channel.
IP Address - When you click on this, the IP address that you are using appears as the watermark in your video.
Custom Text - Here you can type a text in the corresponding text box and that is what will appear as a watermark in your video. 

You can also set font color, change font size, and set the opacity of your watermark in dynamic watermarking. The opacity level describes the transparency level, where 1 is not transparent at all, 0.5 is 50% see-through, and 0 is completely transparent.

To customize dynamic watermarking for your site, follow these steps:

2. Tweak the embed code. Add "wmtext=text" after the "?". Replace text with the custom message you intend to add

<iframe id="iframe" src="//abc.nichevid.com/player/12345?wmtext=text" frameborder="0" width="1280" height="720" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

3. Now add the above embed code on your site and change the text to suit your needs. 

That's about it with watermarking your videos on the Private Media Channel.
